Journal With Impact: Vocation Vision

Workshop: Six Conversations for Writing Creative Journals

“Never look down to test the ground before taking your next step: only he who keeps his eye on the far horizon will find his right road.” Dag Hammarskjold


So what is calling you from your heart to be and to do? Whether full time, part-time, special time, paid or unpaid, noticed or in the background, long term or short term commitment?

Each person is unique. Each one is a special work of art.  So I’m going to share an excerpt from an artistic vision statement given by Shona Cole for you to apply to yourself as your vocation. Substitute your life where she uses the word art. Take the time to journal your thoughts before you write out your own statement.

“An artistic vision statement should reflect your personality, values and aspirations, outlining the big picture—the direction you want your art to take. In order to create an artistic vision statement, think of how you want to live your life—of ideals for which to strive. Be honest, but idealistic. Think big. Think of things that would sound ridiculous if you said them out loud.”

And as you process through these suggestions think about what you are hesitating to say out loud even to yourself.

We need to know and commit to our personal vision, accept the cost of that vision, know our product, and know the business. According to Brian Tracy, goal setters need a clear vision of the end result, based on your values. “You know what you want and why you want it.”

What kind of  ____________ do you want to be? What do you want your life to look like in five years? “Practice ‘back from the future thinking.’” Tracy suggests you envision it in the future and then backtrack to today. What has to happen to make it real?
