Do you have 20/20 vision? Can you see clearly ahead into the future? We are on the doorstep of great opportunities! Start planning now for the year 2020. Imagine the possibilities. Dream the big dreams of what may lay ahead for the next year and the next decade too! Whether you use pen and paper, or your computer, iPad of smartphone, begin drafting your thoughts and strategies. Get your thoughts out of your head and down in black and white where you can see them.
In the days, weeks and few short months remaining of this year (and this past decade) take some time to look back and reflect on the good, the bad, and the ugly. Ask yourself: What lessons have I learned? and take note of those before you focus on your future.
Do not allow fear or excuses to hold you back from being your best self. Maybe you are saying to yourself right now. "Boy, I am flying by the seat of my pants and I am winging it." Don’t crash and burn. Remember life is not a dress rehearsal, this is it. This is the time.
One of my favorite sayings is: Take action and become! Take action and you will become the person you want to be and need to be.
Many times I've had to get tough on myself. Something or someone would capture my attention somehow and cause me to rethink my thinking on life situations and opportunities. Now, I see every moment of every day, as a precious gift. Do you?
The only thing I can think of to have clear 2020 vision for the future is to invest a significant amount of time thinking and writing specific strategies for all the possibilities of my future on this earth. The books I want to publish, the auditoriums I want to speak in, the places and people I am hoping to visit, are all on this list in my written plans for 2020 and beyond.
