Clayton describes his dreamlining process here: Defining Success in Life: the Dreamline Exercise
In essence he uses the original Tim Ferriss method, but adds his own twist by working backwards from the goals to the current situation. This clarifies what needs to be done and helps in setting priorities.
Accountability by automation is a big improvement to the original dreamlining method. Clayton defines the cadence with which to check progress towards the dreamline goal. This cadence is a defined schedule to check progress and to hold yourself accountable for the essential steps you need to do to reach your dreamline goal. Once
you add the progress checking, dreamlining becomes a more systemized method, as opposed to a goal setting method.
