Vision-ing is easy AND hard

Vision-ing is easy AND hard.

If you think vision-ing is all about "dreaming" and "planning", it's EASY.

But if you think vision-ing is about:

• Breaking through self-imposed limitations

• Challenging your comfort zone

• Facing your fears

• Making tough decisions

… then it's HARD.

"Having a vision" is about "taking action". It's about putting in the work that's often isn't glamorous, comfortable, or easy (which is like all the time.)

Some people may say that "hard" is a bad thing. But I believe that anything worth pursuing is going to require effort. And if you're not willing to put in the effort, your vision is nothing more than a pipe dream.

Visionary = Doer

Here is a process that I've found helpful when it comes to vision-ing:

1. Define what success looks like for your team:

• What are the goals you want to achieve?

• What values do you want to uphold?

• What standards do you want to set?

2. Share your vision with your team:

• Explain why these goals, values, and standards are essential.

• Describe how achieving them will make everyone's lives better.

• Share your excitement for what you're building together.

3. Help your team see the path to success:

• Break down the goals into smaller, achievable steps.

• Make sure everyone understands their role in achieving the vision.

• Provide the resources and support they need to succeed.

4. Celebrate progress along the way:

• Congratulate your team on every small victory.

• Show them how they're getting closer to the ultimate goal.

• Thank them for their hard work and dedication.

That's not enough by any means. But it's a start. So if you're feeling stuck, or if you're not sure how to get started, I hope this helps.

Until next time,
