“This is your world.  Shape it, or someone else will.” - Gary Lew

Randomly sit one day and write a life vision.  Don’t stew over it, or make it in to something bigger than it is… which is easy to do. 

I have found that this is usually not much different than what I write in my Daily 5 & 5.  Plus, you can always write another one - a vision, that is.  Or update it.  

Just write something.

Once you've done it, make some copies.  Make it pretty, if you want.  If it is hand-written, leave the original copy somewhere personal or sacred where you can easily refer to it.  Put the other copies in places where you work or think - or get off track.

Consider it.

You may find that your vision evolves.  You may find that you have outgrown your vision.  You may find that you need to update the original - with something even bigger.

It can be easier to grow and evolve your vision and your big ideas after you've already started with a vision or two.  Or 48.  Where do you want to go?  What is it that you want to do?  What are your wildest dreams?

Hot Tracks

If you get stuck on what your vision is, try doing a “personal passion assessment.”  I just made that up.  Make a list of the things that get you fired up, and the conversations, issues, or politics that you notice you are really interested in. 

Start to think more about these things and more about why you are interested in them.  Consider whether they are things you might want to spend more time learning about or doing something with.  Life coach Martha Beck talks about “hot tracks.”  Following "hot tracks" is a bit like tracking a wild animal.  The hot tracks help you find something really cool... when you follow the trail of things that are interesting.  

What you can find is your dreams.
