What is a Vision?

Reflect On Your Natural Talents/Strengths

“One should waste as little effort as possible on improving areas of low competence. It takes far more energy and work to improve from incompetence to mediocrity than it takes to improve from first-rate performance to excellence.”

What I enjoy doing the most is . . .
The best time in my life was . . .
A time when I was at my best was . . .
My most fulfilling experience was . . .

How do you think you can use your Strengths to move your passion forward into reality?

What do I care about?
What do I want to create?
How will you connect?
