We all need to have goals in life. Whether as a business or an individual, it’s important to know where you’re heading, what you want the future to look like. Where you see yourself a few years down the line.
At Citywide, we’ve just embarked on a fascinating journey to do just that. We’ve created our Vivid Vision 2023. It has helped us clarify (and remember) all the things that are important to us, what we stand for and the goals we share as a team. And it has helped us focus our minds on how we want our business to look in three years’ time.
The origins of Vivid Vision
The brains behind Vivid Vision is Canadian businessman, Cameron Herold. He had the idea while watching an Olympic high-jump competition and says: “I saw how the best jumpers used visualization techniques. They’d stand on the runway and use their hands to block out the view of anything but the high jump bar and the landing pit. They’d look at the bar, visualize their run-up, take-off step and roll over the bar. They could see it all, as if a movie were playing in their head.”
Cameron realised the same visualisation technique could be used in business and set out to show everyone how with his Vivid Vision book. Here’s the concept. If you can vividly imagine where your business will be in three years’ time, you can share your excitement for the future of your company in a clear, compelling and powerful way. It’s a way to map out how you see your company looking and feeling in every category of what you do, without getting bogged down by numbers or data. And once you have your Vivid Vision, you can share it with your team and clients, so everyone knows where you’re heading – and can share your passion for why you want to get there.
Making our vision a reality
We’ve produced our Vivid Vision 2023 into a document that we can share with our team, everyone we work with – and anyone who might want to work with us. And it’s something that we’re really proud of. If you’d like to take a look, you’re welcome to here.
