Vision is a picture of the future that produces passion – Bill Hybels

Rocky Mountains – Travel always allows me time to be in Vision

I haven’t written in awhile. To be honest the ideas aren’t coming to me like they did when I started the blog. Most writers would say that you need to work at it and ideas don’t necessarily just come to you. I don’t disagree with that but I also don’t want to write posts just for the sake of writing.

Today though, I wanted to share. 

In January I created a Vision Board as I do every year. It is a reflection of what I want the current year to look like but also my dreams for the future. They are things that I imagine and think about but have NO IDEA when or more importantly HOW they will happen. I don’t want to lose sight of those things even though they seem unachievable at the moment. The idea of a Vision Board isn’t to create a to-do list, it is to have vision.

One of the items on my board this year is an office. I have office space that I use now. But this picture was what MY office would look like. My personality, a space that inspires me. I don’t want this office space in my house, as I am more productive in an office. I live in a small town and I didn’t know where I would find a space the right size. I also work with a group of companies and my proximity to them is very important. So I put the picture on the board with the hope that one day it would happen.

Never limit your vision based on your current resources – Michael Hyatt

Yesterday, 2 months after putting the picture of the office on the board, I found out that the tenant DOWN THE HALL from the group of companies that I work with is moving out. She has a 2 office space available immediately. It is bright with big windows overlooking our cute downtown. Guess what, in my picture, in my vision, the space had lots of natural light! The size is perfect, the location is amazing. 

I can’t wait to make this the inspiring space that I dreamed of! I can’t wait to see what amazing things happen being in a space that inspires me.

While I am very excited about the space, what is even more exciting is the idea that vision is so important…. and it works! Had I not had this vision, the opportunity would have appeared but I wouldn’t have necessarily seen it is an opportunity.  So I will continue to dream and have vision even when those things seem impossible.

  2. When disaster strikes, it is easy to lose vision and focus on the now. I lost my vision board a couple years ago after our basement flooded. Since then life hasn’t been the same. I have the week off and need to get my vision board back now that I have a desk again. My vision is still there but the missing vision board needs to go up. Thank you Lisa for another well timed writing.
