Sometimes your vision runs ahead of schedule
I was looking through my 5847438 Google Docs the other week, when I came across something I'd written back in April 2022. I was on one of my retreats, where me and my besties go away to the Lakes to work on our businesses and get our heads out of the day-to-day.
We always start our trip with a reflection on what we've done since the last trip, and then we each write a sort of 'vision statement'. Think of it like a vision board, but instead of Pinterest or cutting and sticking from magazines, you instead write a future-dated diary, in the present tense, as if you've just lived that day a few years from now.
Here's a snippet of what I wrote, dated April 27th 2024:
"Getting onto a panel at Salon International felt amazing, and I’ve been able to meet so many Bosses in the last couple of years, as I’ve been traveling around the UK and abroad."
"I started the podcast which has been booming ever since."
Well who knew, here I am... Ahead of schedule for a change (and getting to do it alongside some of my best industry buddies!)
So this is my invitation to you, Boss, to take a few minutes this week to scribble down a future-dated diary entry, and see what comes up!
Who knows, you could be ticking off your goals, before you know it.
P.S. Here's a roundup of what I've been working on this week, take whatever you need...
