Not too long ago, I sat down at my desk and created a Google document with everything I want to do before 2024. I even went a step further and shared my list. Sharing makes things official, after all.
At this point, my Google doc has evolved to include habits and rituals that I don’t want to forget. The funny thing is that all these little things add up to what I want my life to look like.
Google says vision is the ability to think about or plan the future with imagination or wisdom.
Here is my version: to have vision is to picture the future with imagination, possibly wisdom, and record it somewhere.
A vision for your life doesn’t have to be perfect. More importantly, it doesn’t have to be done. It’s a work in progress.
New Years Resolutions focus on one year, the one straight ahead. Imagining a year isn’t that hard.
So, work backwards: Create a vision for the year. Write it down. Make your resolution. Share it with someone.
