The Airport Test is a simple but powerful exercise from Pat Flynn’s book “Let It Go”. In this exercise, you visualize where you want your life to be in exactly 5 years from now. It’s a great way to keep yourself accountable about your major goals and serve as an inspiration in your daily life.

To summarize, you choose the 4 most important areas in your life and list 8 – 12 goals in each area. The areas I choose were: Family, Professional, Finances and Health.

With that said, every single goal on this list is important and I’ll be doing everything I can to achieve every single one of them. So here we go.
