This is the time of year that I start working with clients on next year’s goals and plans. As part of this process, I recommend they revisit their vision or life purpose. Does it reflect where you want your life to be sometime in the future?
Setting goals for your business and life is a lot easier with the end in mind and that starts with a clear vision. It’s easier than you think.
- Block off a few hours on your calendar to work on it. Pick a time with no distractions – no phone, kids, television, computer – and some quiet ‘me’ time.
- Pick a time frame. Depending on where you are in life, pick a time frame sometime in the future – 5, 10 or 20 years. If 20 seems overwhelming, start with five years out.
- Let your mind wander – Dream. Answer the question, ‘Where do I want my life to be in 10 years” and start jotting down whatever comes to mind. Think about all the areas of your life — your career or business, financial, family, relationships, health, spirituality, and community. What do you want to be, do, have or accomplish?
- Clean or type it up. Whether you choose to list bullets or write it in paragraph form, write it down and view it often.
It’s sometime in the future. Don’t worry about how you will get there just yet. Since the how can be a dream killer. Don’t worry about sounding silly or trying to set realistic expectations. These are dream killers too. This is not the time to be humble. Let your imagination run wild. Now go do it!
