Why Have Vision?
What's your vision? This is a question you will hear from me often if we ever work together...it is something that most people don't even realize they don't have until you ask them! Most would say that yes, they have vision, but if you ask them further to describe it in detail, they don't get much farther than, "Well, I want my business to do well!" Don't get me wrong, that is a great place to start, but what is your VISION? What are the SPECIFIC goals that get you out of bed and straight to work in the morning? What are you measuring so that when you make it, you can jump up and down and scream at the top of your lungs "I DID IT!!" If you don't know where the finish line is, how are you going to celebrate your wins? All of this can basically boil down to, MAKE SOME GOALS! HAVE SOME VISION! If you don't know what your vision is MAKE IT UP! Fake it 'till you make it is an actual thing...and most times it actually works. You don't have to come up with your total plan now, (although that would be great!), start small, with some minor goals that, when completed, will help you clarify your big goals.
