    Is it possible to achieve your dreams whilst juggling everything else?

    In a world with responsibilities, family, work commitments and only a certain amount of hours in the day. There is not a lot of available energy and effort left at the end of that day to enable you to chase your personal dreams.  Is it still possible to achieve those dreams or is it something that you will need to revisit in the future?

    This is an excellent question, Anna. My personal experience is that if the people in your life love you they will understand your need to take a few hours a day or even a  just a few hours a week to pursue your goals. We have to make time to be creative a priority. Make a dream reality.

      Thankyou for answering, very true what you said the ones who love us do understand that there are dreams to chase and help.

    People with "real" goals don't think like that. There are always undiscovered resources untapped. For example a person sleeps too much. Now if he cuts down his sleeping time he has a new resource in his hand with which he can do wonders. But that takes will power which people like me are too lazy to have  and therefore end up agreeing with "There's not a lot of available energy and effort left". Only way of thinking differs!

      Thankyou for answering Fastian, I am sure it is not laziness just not the right time for your dream.

    I have a completely manic life; full time work, part time 2nd job, a 5 year old daughter, house to keep tidy, trying to lose weight and studying for my Masters degree. The study is part of trying to achieve my dream, though, and I took it on so I could get into teaching. I hope to be on a PGCE course by September, and have an interview shortly. I think if you are determined enough, you will always make time to achieve your goals and dreams.

    It's a matter of working out priorities.

      Thankyou for answering, I agree totally and think that these priorities change over time and then so does the dream!

    Anna, there have been times in my life that others demanded my full attention.  I had very little time for myself.  Writing could not be my priority for many years.  Although, I did try to sneak in a few works and kept them in a file to be brought to life at another time.

    But, all thing change with the passage of time. As someone mentioned earlier,
    you must set your priorities and be comfortable with your decision. 

    If you cannot make it happen at this point in your life, maybe it is meant that you should wait.  Patience truly is a virtue. Good luck to you.

      Thankyou DJ Anderson, I agree with you, everything changes with time and as these changes happen then the goals and dreams you had before change as well and evolve to new ones. I look forward to reading your completed works from the file.

    I think it depends on the person and what help they recieve. Are they good at time management? Would they need someone to help push them in the right direction? With help from others and devotion, I believe everyone can.
