Most of the brainstorming involved their personal, financial, family and career dreams and goals, including dreams of retiring on a beach, buying a boat, expanding their business, buying vacation homes, etc.
Personally, this is something our family does every year. Goals needed to be very specific as to what you want to work on, and time frame must be set in order to achieve it. Writing it down on a journal also works well, specially for long term goals. Doing these makes it more realistic and achievable. 
  • What are my dreams and goals for the future?
  • What do I need to do to get there?
8. Problems
Here they brainstormed primarily about finding solutions to those problems that were causing them the most stress at the moment. Most were immediate problems related to their jobs and family. Some were longer-term and related to preempting future potential problems they were anticipating down the road most often related to their careers.
