Here are just a handful of sample prompts from the book that help rein in and navigate the night mind:
 
·       Write a resume that consists only of your failures and rejections. Which of these are still holding you back?
 
·       Fill this box with all of your worries. Now sort them into these boxes: productive worries & unproductive worries.
 
·       Write down every amazing idea you have tonight. Tomorrow, highlight the ideas that are still amazing.
 
·       What would you save in a fire? What would you burn to the ground?
 
·       What will you be remembered for? What would you like to be remembered for?
