A vision without a plan is just a dream. A plan without a vision is drudgery. A vision with a plan can change the world. (Anonymous)
You know what visualization is. And you know that visualization is a powerful tool that can be used to help achieve any goal. I encourage you to use visualization in plotting your course for 2013.
I want you to find a quiet place, and for 15 minutes I want you to close your eyes and think about the following questions.
It’s Thursday, January 2, 2014, the first work day of the new year. What does the day look like for you?
Where are you?
What are you doing?
Who are you with?
Who are your primary clients now?
Who are your prospective clients?
What was your revenue for 2013?
What cool projects did you work on?
Who are two interesting people you met in 2013?
How did you become better at your work? What new skills did you acquire?
How do you feel, physically? How is your health? How often did you exercise in 2013? What did you do for recreation?
What were the best books you read?
What industry events did you attend?
When and how did you step out of comfort zone?
Whom did you turn to for motivation and inspiration?
When you’re finished with the visualization, write down on a piece of paper what you saw, and keep paper in a place where you’ll see it every day.
Next, develop your plan for making the vision a reality. Write the plan this week.
