When you began your job as a leader, you probably dreamed about the type of leader you’d become and all that you’d accomplish. Think back to that dream, however grandiose or naïve. Has any of it actually happened?
Your dream probably reflects the very core of who you are. If you feel disconnected from your dream, it’s not too late to revisit it. First, try to describe it. In your mind, capture a clear image of that dream. It helps to look at the big picture – step back from the trees and look at the whole forest!
Do your actions move you closer to your dream, or father away?
Studies show that having a clear picture of your dream allows you to create a roadmap to achieving and living this dream. Your daily actions can be baby steps or giant leaps toward your dream. Do your actions move you closer to your dream, or farther away? Think about who you want to be, rather than what you need to do.
Be intentional about how you use your time. I recommend using the Full Focus Planner to keep you on track.
This exercise in dreaming helps me recognize that I am fortunate to live out my dream – equipping you with the tools to make your dreams come true.
Here’s to the dreamers whose actions are transforming their lives and their communities!
