People are sometimes surprised when I tell them that individuals can benefit as much as corporations when it comes to writing a vision statement. Your personal vision statement helps direct your life. It provides the guidance necessary to navigate your days and make choices about your career. It’s a tool that allows you to say “yes” or “no” to choices or paths presented to you. It’s your compass on the path to your authentic self.
Benefits of a personal vision statement
