Maybe you heard Colin Kaepernick, the narrator in the recent Nike ad, say:
“If people say your dreams are crazy, if they laugh at what you think you can do — good, stay that way, because what nonbelievers fail to understand is that calling a dream crazy is not an insult, it’s a compliment. Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything.”
The roughly two-minute clip ends with Kaepernick saying: “So don’t ask if your dreams are crazy. Ask if they’re crazy enough.”
To me, it is an exciting ad, but still, the question is how do we make our dreams become reality?
So it is with you in mind that I put 15 years of education about
‘how to create your own vision’ in a webinar called
Develop Your Strategic Vision!
How to create the life you want?
How to have work that makes you happy?
Whether you want to develop a product, solve an organizational problem, co-create a better team, build a nurturing family life, lift up your community, create great friendships, etc., your vision is always your North Star.
Just having goals is not enough, and long term not inspiring enough. It is your vision that inspires you to aim towards something that feels great. It is about seeing the opportunity, not about buying into negativity and drama or the “can’t” and “won’t” attitudes.
Focusing on the vision you’ve chosen is a major ingredient of what it takes to feel positive no matter the challenges.
Your vision paints the picture of a better future, it brings to life the dream of your new reality and creates a language that describes what you really, really want.
Choose to create your strategic vision for your life and work! develop the direction for either 1 or 3 months, 6 or 9 months, a year or a few years?
