Make Your Dream Come True Day
Also known as
Make Your Dreams Come True Day
annually on January 13th (since 1993)
Jeffrey Mayer in 1993
Make Your Dream Come True Day, which has also been known as Make Your Dreams Come True Day, was created by Jeffrey J. Mayer, author of time management books, to encourage people to find the right job for themselves. It appears he started the holiday in 1993, the same year he published Find the Job You've Always Wanted in Half the Time with Half the Effort.
Mayer said that in order to find a career they love, one must decide what they value and what they wish to do with their life. He suggested observers of the day set time aside to imagine what types of work they would enjoy and to make a plan to make their dream come true. He said they should make three lists: one that lists aspects of current and past jobs that they found satisfying and fulfilling, one that lists their skills and talents, and one that lists their accomplishments. After this, they should use what they learned to pursue a new job and make their dream come true!
