How to create an inspiring vision
If this image is looking a little tired and dated, well it’s because it is. I created this vision-board sometime during 2000-2001 having worked through the exercise I’m about to share with you.
My vision was for a lifestyle and business that was at best (at the time), vague. Ultimately it lead to Flying Solo a business I ran for over a dozen years. That is, started - developed - grew - loved - and successfully exited.
And at the core of the success of this little business was without doubt my inspiring vision. When faced with a crossroads - as we often are - it helped me choose the right path. When confronted with problems or opportunities, again it helped me make the right decisions. It helped me recognise how I wanted my work to make me feel and it was a constant visual reminder of what I valued and the place work occupied within my life.
These days, whenever I feel unsure about my next action, or sense I’m becoming a little jaded by repetition or occasional tedium, I go back to my new, inspiring vision. And it works every time!
I invite you to do some work in this area, so that you too can enjoy the immense power of an inspiring vision. This link will take you to a pdf of a chapter from Flying Solo: How to go it alone in business that I wrote in 2005 and in it is the precise process I follow. I hope you choose to do the same.
