The desire audit is a Targeted Inquiry practice to help you unearth your desires, wants, needs, goals, and aspirations. It's great for coming up with a bunch of potential ways to enhance your emotional experience of work, business, and life.

Basic steps for inquiry sessions

  1. Review the instructions for Targeted Inquiry
  2. Choose either Freewriting or Freespeaking for your session
  3. Review the questions and prompts below
  4. Set a timer for 10-20 minutes
  5. Dump out everything that comes to mind in relation to the prompts. No stopping until the time's up.
  6. (Optional) Repeat the exercise with a prompt you haven't explored yet, and see if it takes you in new directions.
Important reminder: Just because an idea surfaces during an inquiry session, doesn't mean it's true, or that you have to believe it. You're invited to hold anything you discover here lightly, and with a wee bit of skepticism. Take what's useful and resonant, and discard the rest.
