Vision: Do You Know Where You’re Goin’ To?
Forgive the incorrect grammar, but superstar singer, Diana Ross made famous the following lyrics:
Do you know where you’re goin’ to?
Do you like the things that life is showin’ you?
Where are you goin’ to?
Do you know?
You see, being crystal clear about your destination is absolutely critical for long-term success in any venture. If we lack a clear vision, we’re easily distracted and have no ultimate destination.
So I ask you — do you know?
Have you firmly set your sights on where you’re ‘goin’ to’?
If you have, you’re better prepared to choose the right road to get you there. If you haven’t, choosing just any road will get you to nowhere.
In later lines from the song, Ross reminds us of the reality of not knowing:
Now looking back at all we’ve planned
We let so many dreams just slip through our hands
Why must we wait so long before we see
How sad the answers to those questions can be
I encourage you to spend some time deciding where you’re going. When you crystallize your dreams into destinations and maintain a strong desire to exceed, I think you’ll soon find yourself on the road to where you want to be!
