Realizing Your Personal and Professional Vision
By Dan Lionello, an EO Vancouver member president of Padtech Global Sourcing
Have you heard of the Painted Picture concept? It’s a process that helps you explore your truths in order to clearly envision where you want to go in business or life. In business, it’s a vision; a high-level overview of what your company currently is and where it could be. In life, it’s a detailed look at how your life is and how it could be. The physical creation of everything we wish to accomplish begins in the mind; therefore creating a “Painted Picture” is the first important step to achieving the results you desire.
By beginning with the “end in mind,” your Painted Picture becomes a snapshot of the future and allows you to draw a “map” to get there. By focusing on your personal or professional vision and using it as a filter when making decisions, it will guide you to where you want to go. Not only will your Painted Picture allow you to clearly communicate where you want to go to yourself, but it will also communicate to others your intentions so that they can help you get there, too. What’s more, it will allow you to align all of your resources to achieve your vision.
