In these first two episodes Jaimee talked about writing down what’s most importantto you in your life in episode one, and then talked about writing down your big bulky desires or goals in episode two. This reminded me of something along these lines I did in early 2001 (?). Sharing it not because the content is particularly interesting, but to illustrate that “write down” doesn’t necessarily mean making a list in the usual way. My thought was that perhaps this might help someone feel free to diagram these things out in a way that organizes them by modality, or topic, or location, or whatever works best for them and to remind people that it doesn’t have to be a linear list.
I redid this later and it got a bit more concentric circle oriented, but the shape is just whatever way helps you evaluate the relative importance of things to you, your life, those you care about, and so on, so I’d recommend not letting yourself be constrained by what I or anyone else has done.

Just a quick sketch I did on the back of a care package we sent to Geek at camp. Really tough to draw with ballpoint pen on one of these bubble pack envelopes (and a re-used one at that!). Yah, I should have thought of this before I was sitting in the post office parking lot with only a ball point pen handy.
It’s supposed to be some kind of fantasy bad guy in light armor. Spikes on gauntlets and toes of boots, war ax with hammer on backside. you get the idea. Rough with no pre sketch with pencil etc, and it shows. ah well, likely to make him smile and that’s what matters 🙂

First, Dad of Dad suggested that the left side wall corner didn’t “read” right in my old house picture. Basically, he called me on not finishing the drawing properly (I had spent enough time on it and wanted to move on and so I stopped when I knew it wasn’t really “done” – busted!). So here’s what it looks like after I “fixed” that problem (though I still didn’t spend as much more time on it as I ideally would):
