The Process of Creating Vivid Vision to Live for the Long Game
Have you ever thought about what you want in life? Like truly what you want. Not just for during this season of your life, but in the long run. What do you want your life to look like?
Do you have a vivid picture of what you want or is it a little blurry?
Think about it in terms of a CEO and an owner. Yes, they are DIFFERENT. Even if it’s the same person, they wear two different hats depending on what they are doing.
We break it down in this podcast episode if you want to listen:
Here’s a quick recap:
The CEO is the person that executes based on the owner’s intent.
The owner is the person with equity and ownership.
If the owner’s intent is to sell the business one day, the CEO will execute and run the business based on that.
The owner’s intent could also be to create wealth, pass down to generations, create value, make it a lifestyle business, etc. Whatever the intent is, the CEO executes based on that.
The owner is thinking much more long term, while the CEO makes the hard decisions based on what the owner’s plan is.
If the CEO and the owner are the SAME person, they are still completely different roles. The CEO role is all about executing, like we’ve mentioned. If you’re only focused on that CEO role, you aren’t going to keep that bigger picture in mind. At some point, you have to put on your owner hat to make sure that the decisions you are making align with your long term vision.
Just because something is working right now, if it doesn’t align with the long term vision of the owner, it will fall apart.
You are the CEO and the owner of your life. Are you making decisions today that align with what you want for your life in 5 years? 10 years? 15 years?
You cannot have a strategy or a vision WITHOUT the intention of the owner. It is critical.
This 100% applies to your life, your health, your business – everything.
You have one hat to wear thinking long term and one to wear on executing the long term.
We’ve created a little exercise to get you thinking about your long term vision and HERE is a video walking you through it!
