When you imagine who you hope to be in the days ahead, what metaphor speaks to you?
As you think of that metaphor, what is it about the color, shape, size, spirit, movement of that metaphor that speaks to you?
How will you represent that metaphor publicly or secretly to remind you of whom you hope to be, what you want to do, and where you will go?
In our very boisterous world of words, sounds, people, it might be nice to keep that symbol close at hand to view in real time not somewhere hidden in text or on a computer, but perhaps a small sculpture, piece of jewelry, or drawing you can view whenever you want to.
Metaphors strongly represent for us what we want to be, and choosing your metaphor demands good time and thought.
