We all have a future we care about, whether it is the next year, the next decade, or even far off, after we are gone. Controlling that future is as simple as imagining it in detail and constructing a bridge of enabling goals to achieve it. By daring readers to dream and plan, CREATING YOUR FUTURE will open them up to new and creative possibilities; by creating a structured vision of where they are headed, readers will discover that they are suddenly free to be more spontaneous and present in their daily lives. A motivational road map for getting the most out of life, this five-step program - Commit, Create, Construct, Carry Out, and Celebrate - invites readers to participate fully with the book, to reflect, to revise, and ultimately to visualize and live a more meaningful and deeply fulfilling life.

Review:

"Most people spend more time planning their next vacation than they do planning the rest of their lives," says Dave Ellis in Creating Your Future. Yet one of the most powerful paths to creating the future you want is choosing it. You achieve this by setting long-term goals based on a long-range vision. This book shows you the process, with activities that prompt you to write your goals, then follow these five steps:

  1. Commit to creating your future.
  2. Create a vision of your future.
  3. Construct a plan to fulfill your vision.
  4. Carry out your plan.
  5. Celebrate what you've done and continue creating your future.
Each step has its own chapter with many, varied exercises--mental, written, and active--to help you achieve that step. For example, the "Carry Out Your Plan" chapter describes 22 strategies that help you become the person you want to be and turn your goals into reality. This book won't be a quick skim--there's work to do as you read each chapter, in order to get the most from Ellis's process. You'll emerge much more knowledgeable about yourself and your goals, with a good start along the path to the future you want. --Joan Price
