NASA ‘s mission is to explore. They visit destinations in our solar system and study worlds beyond to better understand big questions. How did we get here? Where are we headed? Are we alone?
In which areas are you exploring smaller and bigger questions? It doesn’t have to be as extraordinary as NASA does, where are you heading too? Which vision do you have about smaller and bigger areas that keeps you busy? Are you implementing a new method or tool in your work or study? Can you already look ahead to what might come next after this implementation? Or where do you want to be in 2030 or 2040?
'Having your end in mind' about something that you're implementing can be seen as your 'vision' of the future of yourself, your community, a project or an activity.' When you develop a vision you are able to both imagine the future to turn ideas into action and visualise future scenarios to help guide effort and action.
A person with entrepreneurial skills draws their own plan and act accordingly, therefore needs to have a clear vision to:
- develop simple future scenarios where value is created for their community and surroundings.
PERSONAL VISION BOARD
A vision board is something like a dream board filled with images, pictures, affirmations of what you dream about or something that you want to achieve or accomplish. Vision boards act as a visual presentation of dreams and objectives and can guide you towards your aim while helping you to focus, plan and do the tasks that are needed to reach your dreams or objectives. At the same time they can make you creative and motivated in finding ways to reach your dream or objective. There are no rules for creating a vision board, some make it small, others make a poster size and put it on the wall so it inspires them through their journey. When you create a vision board, make time for it and enjoy your creativity.
FUTURE SCENARIOs FOR YOUR TARGET GROUP
Another way to work towards your future and imagination of social change is creating a future scenario. A scenario can be described as a very detailed portrait of a believable future for yourself, your organisation or your community. When creating a future scenario you will think about which problems, challenges and opportunities the future could present. It is helpful to create a persona first. This persona represents yourself, or your target group, the people who you want to vision their possible future. You can create a future scenario in narrative style or other type of text. You can do it on your own, but very nice is to create future scenarios together with peers, colleagues or your target group itself.
