Would you like to better lead a life by design?
The starting point is your written personal vision, and this article reviews three highly impactful articles to help make your personal vision more meaningful and impactful. Here’s what’s covered:
- How to develop a meaningful, motivating, and powerful personal written vision
- Unlocking your fullest potential (the Tom Brady case study)

How to Develop a Written Personal Vision
This article, titled The Cheshire Cat, details how to develop your written personal vision. It’s a simple process of listing your life roles (4-8), and then writing in your vision for each role in 20 words or less. This vision should give you both purpose and motivation for each one of your life roles.
Unlocking Your Fullest Potential
Potential is your capacity to become something more than you are today — it’s what is in you, but not yet realized. We all have more potential within us than we can ever imagine, including you! It’s there. It’s powerful!
Your personal written vision gives you a clear picture of and unlocks your potential. And, once you define your personal vision, you unleash your mind and work ethic to realize your potential! This case study and article outlines how Tom Brady started at the back of the pack and unlocked his potential by defining his vision. You too can unlock your full potential. It starts with a clear, articulate written personal vision.
Creating a Vision Board
What’s more inspiring? To say “I’m going to complete a 10k trail run by June 30th?” Or to put this picture on your wall and say, “I’m going to complete this 10k trail run by June 30th”?
That’s what a vision board does — it takes what is a written vision or goal and gives it shape, color, and identity that captures and inspires! It further unlocks potential!
If you’ve developed a personal written vision, you’re 75% of the way to creating your first vision board! The only next step is to find pictures and images that capture the essence of your personal vision for each life role, and if you’d like to include your goals, pick images that capture the essence of those goals. Here’s an article that walks through this process step-by-step.
Developing and living in line with your written personal vision is key to leading a life by design, living with purpose and motivation, unlocking your potential, and doing what matters most.
So take some time to develop, update, or review your personal written vision. And, make reviewing your vision a part of your pre-week planning. You’ll find that it makes determining what matters most for each role much easier. You’ll also find that you live with greater purpose. That’s becoming your best!
