As I study people who are successful in their lives and businesses, there is one thing that is very evident, they all have very clear, specific visions of what they want from both their lives and their businesses. Right now, it is still morning; I am sitting at my desk, working and looking out the window. The sky is blue. There is not a cloud in the sky; the sun is shining and, well, there is a little more than a breeze blowing right now. That just means that all of the fog has been blown off of the San Francisco Bay and if I step outside I can see the city of San Francisco off in the distance.
I have written my vision for my life and business; where I would like to be in five years from now. As I look out the window and see this beautiful, clear day, I realize that I need to make my vision even more specific. I need to write two visions; one for my personal life and one for my business life. A five year vision is good to have, something to work towards, but I also need to write my visions for this next year. What goals do I need to accomplish this year that will move me closer to the five year vision?
Today I am grateful for all of the people in my life who continue to support my efforts. Who believe in me and what I am working on accomplishing. There are many people in my life that I love. I am truly grateful for these people.
