Your Ideal Life in Three Acts
Purpose of this Reflection and Planning Exercise
This is a good exercise for a training session focused on life planning, happiness, or mindfulness. It could also be a useful exercise for discussing the importance of prioritizing during a session on time management.
Instructions to Run this Activity
1. Ask participants to write the story of their ideal life in three acts, as though it was a play:
- Past dreams achieved.
- Present situation (good and bad parts)
- Their ideal future
2. You can ask participants to share this exercise with a small group and discuss it, or it can be used as an individual reflection. Even if participants carry out the exercise individually, some discussion with the rest of the class after the activity is always useful.
- By asking participants to focus on their ideal life and finishing with their ideal future, it gives them a positive perspective on what they can still achieve.
