Create a Vision! Know What You Want
“For the most part, many of us encounter visions whilst working for some corporation or government organization. And for the most part, visions are boring, bear little relation to the reality of wider organizations and become nothing more than a plaque behind the reception wall. But we shouldn’t be so quick to dismiss how powerful a vision can be at creating real excitement and momentum and become a driver for change!
Stop and consider – when you’ve been at your best, at your most stoppable, hasn’t that been when you’ve had a clear idea of what it was that you wanted or needed to achieve? You weren’t willing to quit until the job was done, or take no for an answer, or be slowed down by the negatives coming from others. And these successes have arisen from ad hoc and very narrow visions of what you were aiming for – just think therefore about how much more effective you would be if you had a clear vision for all of your life!
The same is true for your business. You must have a vision, and your vision must excite you and if you have employees it must excite them too (p 31-32).
