I have been a long time believer in vision. Not so much in the law of attraction working on its own, but I do believe that without a clear vision, it makes it hard to create the right strategic plan to get you to that vision.
I found that when I biked across the country. It was the strong vision of biking across the country that gave me the direction for creating a bike route and a plan. If I just set out to bike for 6 months I could have stayed home and ridden with the bike club in circles — round and round.
That clear vision allowed me to create a strategic plan that we focused on implementing. The results — a route across the country, places to stay each night, 10 service project locations across the country and lots of places to visit and see.
I use this as a metaphor for business. In business, your vision is what drives you. Sharing that vision, expanding the vision all contribute to your ability to create strategies for success.
When the vision is unclear or non existent it is hard to really grow your business. You can perhaps keep it going on a day to day — riding in circles fashion. But to really grow you have to be aiming at something — clear and compelling.
That vision drives your actions.
Each year, I take some time to look at my vision, to review it and refine it and create that new strategic plan for the upcoming year!
It isn’t about New Year’s resolutions. It is about — a clear and compelling vision for the future.
I offer a complimentary webinar each year for my contacts as well — called EnVision 2016. It is usually fun…
Bring your colored markers, paper, pen and enthusiasm and take an hour to create your vision for 2o16.
