Casting Vision

November 14, 2023

Caffeinated Thought of the Week:

Vision is just a fancy term to communicate your proposed solution to a problem. The story of Nehemiah and returning to rebuild the Jerusalem wall gives us a 3 step plan for articulating your vision: 

  1. Define the problem
  2. Offer a solution to the problem
  3. Present a compelling reason for your vision - Why must we do this? Why must we do this now?

This approach can be applied in your workplace or even to get your family to rally around a cleaner house. Just repeat the vision regularly, celebrate your vision systematically, and lead by example by embracing the vision personally.

Quote of the Week:

“The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision.” - Helen Keller

Solution of the Week:

We can all agree there are plenty of people who are good at identifying problems, but what we need is more people taking action. We need more people to offer a solution to people and lead others to fix it.

So what breaks your heart? Maybe today is the day you take a step in the ring.
