A fresh start to the year can bring renewed and reflective energy, making it the perfect time for goal setting. I enjoy reviewing the previous year with my clients because it’s a time when we celebrate successes, acknowledge challenges, and reflect on progress. This context helps us build goals for the year ahead. It also helps us build a foundation to set our vision for the future.

Why vision setting matters

To quote one of my clients, “Vision is the glue that connects goals to tactics.” In other words, clarifying your vision builds the motivation and specificity that is needed to build our goals roadmap. We need to understand why we want to do something in order to take action. Connecting with this vision is a key strategy to reaching your goals. It’s also known to be almost as effective as physical practice is with athletes! Why? Visualization is a mental rehearsal for our success.

Are you ready to set your 2022 vision and make your goals a reality? If so, I invite you to explore and reflect on the following:

  • Identify one of your big goals for 2022.
  • Close your eyes and envision the future, the end of 2022, when you have achieved this goal.
  • Explore this mental vision – What are you doing? How are you feeling? What are your surroundings like? Who are you with?

Repeat this process regularly throughout the year to keep your vision alive as you work towards your goal.

I look forward to what’s next for you. Take care and here’s to your happiness and health! Until next time.
