• So your Desired Future State seems unattainable now. Why? What are the preconditions that would have to be in place for it to become possible?
  • List these preconditions below your Desired Future State. Try to be as specific as possible.
  • Now repeat: for each precondition you listed, what new preconditions are necessary to achieve it?
  • Work in reverse – try for at least 3 levels of preconditions, if not more, until you see a possible starting point you can take today, and the path linking back up to your long-term goal.
