Here are some questions for your most important goals
How secure will reaching this dream make me?
What can I work on now to enable me to fulfill these dreams? If I want to play first violin in a symphony orchestra, write novels, own my own business, become a physician, and so on, what are the first steps I must take?
Do I have the talent, knowledge, and discipline necessary to reach this particular goal?
Whom should I seek as a teacher or mentor to help me reach this dream?
If I reach this main dream, my major goal, will I be both happy and healthy?
In my quest for this dream, will I still be able to have many friends and have good relationships with my family, friends, and coworkers?
What is the appropriate time-line for achieving this dream? (Or can I really set one?)
Is this goal something I will love to pursue for a lifetime?
What obstacles do I need to overcome to make my dream a reality?
