Tournament of Wants – Spiritual

Purpose

The purpose of this exercise is to look through all the wants, desires, and dreams I have listed related to MY SPIRITUAL LIFE and find out “Which one is most important to me now?” That is the ONLY question I am to consider. Not “I have to do this first” or “I’ll want this in 10 years…” “Which one is most important to me now?” That’s it. Each round will take two wants and get a winner, and then those winners will face off, and so on until there is only one thing. Let’s see where this goes.
