Start out with an ideal and end up with a deal.
Keep the end in mind and focus on that. Say 'I am at my ideal weight of...,' not 'I want to be...'. Focus on what it would feel like to you to have achieved that goal; Get in touch with that winning feeling.

A world-class cultural center in a rural setting, the home of Dartmouth College is ideal if you're an outdoors person.
Online courses are ideal for focused training programs like this. We know teachers have limited time and they need the flexibility of self-paced curriculum. Our distance learning platform makes it easy for them to get the information they need in a way that fits their schedule.
A whole lot of innocuous material. This is the ideal DVD for the shut-in, and the socially maladjusted. If your mother is your best friend, this is the DVD for you.
The children were pleased to receive their gifts and see their parents. They were not ideal conditions, but under the circumstances it was still enjoyable for everybody.
The ideal of brotherhood of man, the building of the Just City, is one that cannot be discarded without lifelong feelings of disappointment and loss. But, if we are to live in the real world, discard it we must. Its very nobility makes the results of its breakdown doubly horrifying, and it breaks down, as it always will, not by some external agency but because it cannot work.
In an ideal world, there would be a two-and-a-half- to three-month off-season. I don't think our players like to sit out that long without playing. If we can add a few more weeks, what our medical people are telling us is that players can rest, rehabilitate and build back up and work on preventive things during the season.
I believe that in Stagecoach we have identified the ideal partner who can provide the financial flexibility and resources to support our next growth phase.

I'm very proud of our guys. The conditions were not ideal today, it was very windy. Some of our guys were able to take care of business and some struggled. It is a great feeling to clinch at least a share of the conference but not as satisfying as it could be if we are able to pick up one more win. We have a tough match on Sunday though, I'm sure Ole Miss will have a good crowd and their players will be fired up. I really want to see our guys come out and be aggressive. If we can compete well, then we have a chance to make ourselves very proud.
The ideal buyer would have strong ties to the local community, have a commitment to quality journalism and the patience to understand it has to be a long-term investment.
In an ideal world we would have bought a brand new all-singing-all-dancing MAN truck. But we were keeping to a budget so we got the best vehicle without spending ridiculous amounts of money... only stupid amounts of money.
