Dates on my 2020 calendar are beginning to fill up well before 2019 even closes. This reminds me to stop and think. Before continuing to commit to appointments for next year, I should probably reflect on the past year...Do new appointments fit or conflict with the vision I have set for my life? Did I complete my New Year's Resolutions for 2019? Will any of my goals from 2019 roll over to 2020? Personal Vision is discussed in the ASCE Plot Points Season 1 Episode 14: https://news.asce.org/asce-plot-points-season-1-episode-14-personal-vision/
On a note related to vision and goals, I received a message this week from the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History & Culture, where I am an Ambassador. It included a quote from Dr. Benjamin E. Mays, former President of Morehouse College and mentor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. "Die young, die middle-aged, die old," he said "[but] remember that the most useful life and abundant life is the one in which one dreams dreams that will never completely come true and chooses ideals that forever beckon but forever elude. To seek a goal that is worthy, so all-embracing, so all-consuming, and so challenging that one can never completely attain it, is the life magnificent; it is the only life worth living."
With all of this to ponder, what is your process for creating your vision and goals? I appreciate any advice or resources you would like to share.
