Activity 6.1

Activity 6.1 Clarifying my goals through visualisation

Timing: We suggest spending around 15 minutes on this activity.

It’s time to think about your own goals!

Go to Activity 6.1 in your Reflection Log or consult your notebook if you have been using one.

Now take some time to visualise yourself in the future. Where are you? What are you doing? Allow yourself scope to consider that there are possibilities open to you. What are your hopes and plans for the future?

You should just capture an impression of your thoughts and ideas at this stage.

A good way to do this is to try creating a picture of what your future life might look like: either by drawing a picture or a spider-diagram using pen and paper, or by creating a poster – a montage of images and key words. You can do this by tearing images out of newspapers and magazines to add to your drawing. What are you doing in the picture?

Or if you prefer, jot down some ideas – a sentence or two – about what your hopes are for your future, saving your notes in your notebook or Reflection Log. Alternatively, you can use this document [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)]   for your notes.

You can share this or keep it to yourself.
