Crafting Your Vision

A few days ago I wrote about the importance of having a driving vision in your business.

Because without a vision you flounder, you don’t know what to work on, you run around in circles for 3 years, always learning but never able to decisively implement.

So a client asked me, can you tell me the steps to crafting my vision?

And my first thought way, no, I can’t.

It’s unique to you, you really have to think about it, dig deep, determine what you stand for and how you want to help others.

Then I thought, well, why not give you the questions to ask to dig deep?

You’ll still have to dig deep, this isn’t a 7 step formula, you’ll still have to make decisions, be strong, and work hard to determine how you can help others

But here’s your start:

What do you love doing?

What interests you?

What do you find yourself googling and reading articles about online?

What wakes you up at night?

What do you see is wrong with something online?

What do you see is wrong with something in your world?

Do you ever think, I could do THAT better?

What is THAT?

If you could change one thing in the world, what would it be?

What do you want you legacy to be when you die?

What do you want to leave behind when you die?

What knowledge do you have that you don’t to bury in your grave when you die?

How can you be the most help to people in the world?

That’s not an exhaustive list.

That is a start.

Dig deep.

Spend hours on these questions.

If you do this in 5 minutes, you are cheating, wasting your time, like copying answers on an algebra test.

But trust me, if you’ll dig really deep, do some soul-searching, ask questions and find your vision, craft your vision,

instead of just learning how to build a list or write a blog post (cause you already know how, but nothing works because you don’t have your vision)

Get your vision.

Craft your vision.

Do the hard work to come up with it.
