We played a game during our morning meeting. We blindfolded one team member and asked them to throw a tennis ball in the trash can. No matter how talented this person was, even if they play basketball like Lebron James, without seeing where the trashcan was, they can't make their shot. For ambitious individuals without a vision it will be difficult for them to succeed.
Vision can be used as motivation, that is imaging all the good things to come: freedom of time and money, traveling, success, future family, car, etc. Vision can also have negative motivation, imagining what we don't want, the struggles, and obstacles in our way.
Here are TMG's 3 tips to cast your own vision:
1) Know where you are going
What is it that you want? Where do you see yourself 2, 5, 10 years from now? What kind of career do you have? What kind of relationships do you have?
2) How to get there
What is your game plan? How are you going to connect the dots? Setting short term goals to reach your long term vision.
3) What's in it for your team
How will you get your team bought into your vision? Include them in it! How are you going to help other people get to their goals?
What is your vision? Where do you want to see yourself going
