Fast Forward Vision Exercise:
Fast Forward one year from today: what does extraordinary success look like for you?
- Share about your year as if it's already happened. Use past and present (vs. future) tense.
- You do not need to know how to get there.
- Visions are usually 1-3 pages in length. The questions below are to direct the thinking vs. be answered in a linear way.
Questions to Get Started:
