Values- To Do/ To Be
Each of you separately makes two lists and review them together.
• One list is- To Do
• One list is- To Be
Separate the two values:
• To Do is the actual things we usually think of- call the insurance agent, file our taxes, pick up the kids from soccer, plan a vacation.
• To Be is along the lines of- peaceful, well-rested, healthy, loved, compassionate.
• Take it one step further and create a To-Do List For The Universe and let it go. I first heard this at an Abraham Hicks event and thought it was genius!

Taking a Step Back and Breaking it Down
Amid the cleaning frenzy I was guided to do, I discovered a journal from 2009, when Ryan and I were newly married.
Can you guess what I journaled about back then? The same shit. Yep, the same mindset behavior, just packaged a bit differently. The tangible goals, like him catching a big wahoo, having a fishing captain’s license, and moving somewhere where it never snowed had been achieved, but the mindset goals were still a work in progress. Of course, the work never ends because even if you have perfected your mindset, you still have to maintain. Same as working out or losing weight; you have to maintain and continue to do the reps. I am proud to say that there has been improvement. But, there is still work to be done.
The example of finding my old journal is one of the main reasons I wanted to write this book. Change takes work. You have to put in the work to see change and progress. Writing down your thoughts and ideas in a nice pretty journal and then putting it on your shelf doesn’t help you or your spouse. I am all for the pretty journals, I have a stack, but a legal pad would also work just fine.
