START WITH A VISION

by | Dec 21, 2018 | General | 0 comments

If you don’t know where you are going, you will end up everywhere and nowhere.

A vision is a mental picture of a future destination. A career vision depicts the dream you have for your career, who you want to be and where you see yourself in the future. With people living much longer, a career can last 60 years, so whatever you are going through today, is only a small part of your career life. Knowing that you may still have a long way to go, creating a vision can help steer your efforts in the right direction.

Having no vison for your career is like sailing a ship with no destination in mind. Without a clear destination, the ship will sail with the tides and end up wherever the wind blows. Without a vision it is very easy to be distracted because you do not have a clear idea where you are going. If you come across a new career option you will probably join the band wagon because you have no firm grip on a particular career path. The lack of clarity will keep swaying you in different directions.
