The idea of having a vision is often emphasized in the corporate world, with professional vision statements and self-development work that are often part of corporate coaching. But have you ever heard of having a “family vision”? What part does that play in your goal of retirement?
A vision is not the same as a goal. If you get in your car and drive until you’re out of gas, you will most certainly get somewhere. Getting in the car to reach a destination is a goal, but it lacks purpose. Spending quality time with important people is the purpose, and as long as it fulfills that purpose, you can have any number of planned stops.
