We have all heard the saying…..You can achieve it if you can see it! What do you see in your future. Take some time to put together a ‘colorful’ image of your future. Vision boards are extremely popular and there is no time like the present to create one. Simply get some poster board and an old magazine. Cut out where you see yourself in the future. It is best to set some immediate goals along with some long term goals.
While doing this, think about how you are going to get to that point. If you set a vision that you truly want to achieve, then you tend to keep moving towards that goal. If you have no vision, you have no place to aim at in the future. It is hard to map out your route if you do not know where you want to go. Even the new GPS navigation systems can not provide you any help without knowing an end point. It is amazing how quick it will tell you how to get back on track if you get off. I think the lesson is that it is OK to get off track as long as you keep your end goal in mind, you will have the ability to make any necessary adjustments to get back on track. As the GPS would say ……..RECALCULATING!
