3 Steps to Create a Powerful Vision
Play • 7 min

If you want to create a powerful vision for the future, remember these 3 steps:

  1. Start in the future - You can’t take what you’re currently doing and project it forward, because the future will look different and what you do now may no longer be relevant. You have to start in the future, and re-imagine what you COULD be doing in that new context.
  2. Think about the PEOPLE you serve - Before you know what you’ll be doing in the future, you have to know what the people you serve are doing. How are they faring? What are their challenges and aspirations? This will of course determine how you can best serve THEM.
  3. Put it into words that are both accessible and inspirational - You have to create a picture of the vision that people can see and relate to instantly. And it must be bold and compelling enough that people want to actually take action to make that vision a reality.

Once you have a vision for the future that is truly inspiring and worthy of pursuit, then you can look back to the present and determine how to get from there to here.
