Creating The Perfect Vision Statement

  1. Your vision statement must be within the realm of your competence.
  2. It must be aligned within your specific skill set or on existing talents that will be further developed.
  3. Break down your vision statement into milestones so that you'll be able to focus on individual steps along the journey you'll be treading.

A memory palace is an imaginary location where you can store mnemonic images in your mind.

You can turn any room into an imaginary place and place different objects in different areas to remind you of what needs to be done: e.g: Place a YouTube logo near your door to trigger your mind to write a script.

Reflect onto yourself your vision statement for a minimum of 66 days - this is the magic number for habit formation, as it takes consistent and consequently 66 days of practicing to form a habit and that your brain experiences the necessary chemical changes.

This is the law of memory where we tend to remember the beginning of a list relative to those presented in the middle of the list (e.g.: Person A reads a long grocery list is more likely to remember the beginning items on the list than those in the middle).

The primacy effect is based on a set of cognitive biases, but as with all laws, it can be broken.

Procedural Memory

This is a type of implicit long-term memory that aids certain tasks' performance without the conscious awareness of past experiences. E.g.: Riding bikes or tying shoelaces.

RELATED IDEAS

You begin with a purpose. A purpose is the why your organization has begun a journey, guided by the deeply-held values and beliefs that inspire it to make a difference.

Your mission follows the path your organization sets to arrive at its destination: When someone asks you where you are going, they ask you how you are going to get there. Your mission is the how: the unique way you do what you do, the path you choose to follow, the decisions you make to get to your destination.

Vision is your destination, at a point in the near or distant future. It's your goal, and what you expect to find when you arrive at the destination. What can also be the specific product or service you sell. Your mission is your vision in action, connecting your purpose with your impact.

  • Purpose guides you. Your purpose statement articulates why you do what you do, why your organization exists, and why you serve a higher purpose (your cause).
  • Mission drives you. Your mission statement is how you accomplish your purpose; your mission is what drives you every day to fulfill your purpose. It's a direct path to your purpose and vision. Mission is doing what matters and eliminating the distractions; it unlocks the strategy that delivers results and impact.
  • Vision is where you aspire to be. Your vision statement is what you will achieve in the future, the results you want to reach for, the measurable impact you want to make. Your vision reminds you what the difference you make will look like, what change will happen. Vision aligns leaders and followers. It is an ongoing process of aligning your mission with your purpose. Vision keeps you on course, to fulfill your purpose.
  • Impact is what matters: What are the strategic goals that align with your purpose, and what are the measurable results of achieving your vision?

This memorization technique involves creating associations between items in a list and assigning images to each connection to help you memorize better. 

For instance, your accounting exam is tomorrow and you need to memorize which items fall under the Current Asset section of a balance sheet (Cash, Inventories, Accounts receivable, Prepaid expenses).
