2020 Vision

 
 

This past weekend I had the good fortune to be around some of the top martial artist I know. There was a lot of great sharing on every aspect of the martial arts.

A friend and excellent martial artist, Kyoshi Tom Clifford, was talking about 2020 vision. Of course he was talking about wether you have a clear vision about where you want to be in the year 2020. It was interesting that as he asked the room I was able to open up my file that I have on my goals and have right in front of me my vision. Within moments I was able to raise my hand and say several things I had on my list, most of which I didn't need my list for.

Out of the rest of the room only a few other people offered quick answers. The rest had to recreate or create their vision of were they wanted to be. The ones that had clear visions were the top martial artists and school owners in the room. The others were ones that were struggling.

I don't say this to impress anyone, but to make a point of how important this information is. For many years I've been able to live the life I have designed for myself. The reason I am able to do this is because of the clearly defined goals that I have. Even if all you do is write them out one time on a piece of paper and think about the feeling of excitement you will have when they are attained, you are already ahead of the pack.
Many times the excuse is "I don't have time to do those exercises". Well I would argue that you don't have time not to do them. If you don't live the life you design, then you will live the life that someone else has designed for you, helping them attain the goals that they set for themselves.
