Do you think it is a problem if I don't have dreams? I have no aspirations and all I want is to find a good job and earn enough to feed myself and my family. Can that be considered a dream?

Should I be questioning myself to figure out what dreams I have?

Hello, I hope you're doing well amidst these times both physically and mentally.

I've just started reading 7 habits of highly effective people. One of the analogy they used is to imagine you're attending a funeral, only to realise its your very own. There are 3 speakers who will share about their experiences and how you've lived your life: 1. Your spouse/family member, 2. A close friend, 3. A work associate. Now think about what you want them to describe you; your character, contributions and achievements.

Once you think about those 3 things mentioned, you can start to centre your life around those principles and build goals and dreams to reach them.

With this extended circuit breaker, theres more time to think about long term goals and dreams apart from finances. All the best!
