Strategic Visioning Success Strategies

June 11, 2009

On June 6th, the “Strategic Planning With Vision: A Retreat for Entrepreneurs and Small Business Owners” was held.  It was co-created by two Women TIES ( members Pamela Moss Ph.D., Vision Board Expert and Carmen Munson, LMSW, Success Coach for Entrepreneurs. Here is some valuable business advice about strategic planning and visioning to help you in your own business today.

* Visioning and using vision boards give you clarity about your goals and dreams and create a mindset that enables you to achieve them.

* A “vision board” is a deceptively simple but powerful tool – a visual reminder of the change you want to bring to your work or your life.

* Vision boards eliminate magical thinking, the biggest pitfalls of most motivational methods. Instead of just thinking and hoping about the future, vision boards enable you to literally create visions of your dreams today, in a much more visceral fashion. The work from the inside out, not the outside in: you create from your own inspiration, not motivation or fear from the outside.

* After you have “seen” your vision, you must transform your vision into goals. Using a technique like “A Letter From the Future” can help you make your vision become more real, keep you on track by serving as a compass to guide you towards your vision, helps you see how to get there, allows you to see the milestones along the way, and adds significant clarity to the process.

* To set goals – make them S.M.A.R.T. SMART stands for specific, measurable, actionable, realistic and time specific.

* In order to reach any goal you must create action steps. Action steps empower you to make changes in your life and they help prevent feelings of being overwhelmed. They also build your confidence.

* Different size action steps are needed to achieve all goals. For the biggest advantages, use different size actions steps, adjusting them as needed along the way.
