What is your Vision for the New Year?
2020…Wow! I remember as a kid back in the 80s, when we thought of the year 2020 we pictured the Jetsons…Literally. We talked about flying cars and robot maids, little did we know. Well, no flying cars (that I know of) but we do have cars that park themselves.. We also have robot vacuum cleaners and many other conveniences. We have advanced tremendously since the 80s but it isn’t completely what we pictured…yet.
I have been thinking a lot lately about 2020. The first thing that comes to my mind is Vision, 2020 Vision. I am working on my new vision for the New Year. I am a small business owner. I started an online Boutique last February. It has done well but not how I have envisioned it…yet. I have goals that I want to achieve and I am starting 2020 out with a plan.
I want to grow my Brand. I want to gain more customers. I want to increase sales. I work hard and I want to be successful at this. I have a plan, I just have to put it into action.
First thing I am working on is a vision board. I’m a visual person, I’m a thinker, I’m a dreamer.. I need something to look at. I look to the Bible for my decision making, and there is a scripture in the book of Habakkuk 2:2 Then the LORD answered me and said: “Write the vision and make it plain on tablets, that he may run who reads it.
I have always referred to this scripture as physically writing down your vision and running with it. Therefore, the vision board is in process.
Second, Better organization and scheduling. I am a pretty organized person. I actually enjoy organizing things, I know, I’m weird. But seriously, I work better when things are in order. The BIG thing that has been inhibiting this from happening to me this past year is TIME! I have been scattered all over this year. If we had cloning technology as we thought we might have back in the 80s, I’d make another me..haha! One of the biggest challenges of working from home is making time for your business. It is easy to get sidetracked when you work from home… Me working… “Oh look there is a fuzz on the floor, I should vacuum, It’s a nice day, I should take my pup for a walk…Oh look, a squirrel!” Haha, I failed to mention I have ADD… So it is in the plans. Somehow, scheduling work time. I haven’t figured this one out yet, please comment if you have the answer for me!
The third thing I am working on is uniqueness. I don’t want my business to be like everyone else’s. I want mine to look different, set apart. I have had a whirlwind of thoughts on this one. How do I do that? I’m not 100% sure what it will look like yet, but 2020 will be a time of uniqueness for my Business.
What is your vision for 2020? Have you been thinking about it? What is holding you back? I want to encourage you. It is time to put our thoughts into action.. go forth!
