27 Jan The Importance of Big Picture Thinking
We can imagine our ideal summer holiday next year; we can imagine ourselves looking incredible in a swimsuit, lounging around in the sun with a cool drink, surrounded by laughter. We can visualise ourselves looking our best and living our best lives. But if visualisation is so easy, why can’t the majority of us imagine our lives in ten, twenty or thirty years time? Why can we plan a holiday next year, but not plan for the rest of our lives?

The Power of Visualisation
Visualising your future self is tricky, but necessary. The future you won’t have new skills, contacts or an incredible lifestyle if present you don’t conceptualise goals. The small steps your present self makes today are entirely responsible for your future self’s outcomes, so there won’t be any positive outcomes unless you envisage the and create a plan to turn them into reality.
