This article I will talk first about vision. Vision is what makes you wake up in the morning wondering how much you can do to get closer to fulfilling your life purposes each and every day. It motivates your every activity and determines the final destination that you will end up at.
Vision is vital for your self and for those you lead. King Solomon had said “Without vision the people will perish.”

What is the problem your vision is destined to solve?
What purpose does your organization exist to accomplish?
What would go undone if your organization ceased to exist?
Why is your leadership necessary?
Your vision must offer a solution to the world. There must be a problem that goes unresolved unless your vision becomes a reality to drive you forward. Your vision is first simply a mental picture of what you want to accomplish, a mental photograph of your future in an idea first, then bring this vision in through your own words and then put this vision on paper. A compelling and heartfelt reason will engage your heart. It must be something you feel must be done.
