Do You Daydream?

day-dreamI’ve heard it said that adults daydream almost 50% of their waking hours. That’s a lot of time! I imagine everyone is basically wishing that they were somewhere else, with somebody else, doing something else. That’s a whole lot of regret.

I don’t have much time to daydream, nor to second-guess: coulda, woulda, shoulda. I recall a time in my life when I lived in a war zone where missiles fell every night. I certainly wasn’t daydreaming and I didn’t have much time to dream at night, either.

But that’s all behind me.

For now, I decide to try my hand at daydreaming, to give myself a mini-break during the day: hmmm… what would I do if I won lottery-dreamthe lottery? There’s a thought.

Probably be pretty surprised, because first I would have to play the lottery-!

Let’s see…. What would I do? What would you do? Take a cruise? Give to charity? Buy a new car or house? Fix the one you have? Pay off a school loan? Set up college funds for your children or grandchildren? Go on a trip? Invest?

Hmmm… all of the above. Everything looks good when you have plenty of cash.

come-trueWhich leads me to wonder: how much money does it take to turn your head? Would you consider taking a job, or moving far away, if you were offered double or triple your current salary?

That might be a topic for another day’s blog.

Tricky business, this daydreaming stuff….  Is daydreaming a waste of time, counterproductive toward really moving toward our goals, or does it ignite our goals, to be able to get a vision of what we truly want?
