Create a vision for myself, my family or my community
Your vision is a picture of the world in which all people live a little bit better. You can create a vision for yourself, your family or your community. Your vision addresses what needs to be changed, so that we can work together to change it.
Here are some questions to help you create your vision:
1. What is your vision?
Think about your life, family or community. What would you want it tobe like or look like? Your "vision" explains this change. For example:
My life: improve my time management, better budgeting, give more to others...
My family: more family time together, better communication in our family...
My community: safer and cleaner streets, no more gangs, less prostitution...
2. How will people benefit fromyour vision?
If your vision becomes a reality, how will it make everyone's lives better? For example:
I'll be on time for work and events and save more money to give away.
My family will be closer and my children will be able to speak openly to me.
Our children can play safely in the streets and young women will have better jobs.
3. What challenges will you face in achieving your vision?
Are there some problems that might come along as you try and achieve your vision? For example: members of your community will not help cleaning up, the police are not doing enough to get rid of criminals in your area. What are the three actions steps you can take towards achieving your vision?
4. What are three steps you can take towards achieving that goal?
What are some of the things you can do to make your vision a reality. For example: you can give out posters and flyers to people in your community, you can speak to the police about removing vagrants from abandoned buildings, or you could organise a litter-picking event.
5. Choose one action (from the steps you mentioned) and explain how you will get it done.
How will you do it? For example:
What can you do to improve your time management?
How can you spend more time with your family?
How will you organise a litter
6. How can you get support for your vision and increase people's participation in your action?
Think about the ways you can reach people with the message of your vision. Find out ways you can get them to help you. Are there some people who you must speak to? For example: you may be able to speak at your children's school about making the streets safe if you ask the principal.
7. How will you keep yourself encouraged and accountable to live out your vision?
Will you have a friend or relative who'll check up to see how things are going? Is there someone you can speak to who'll encourage you when days are tough?
You are already doing something worthwhile by having this vision. Make sure you are encouraged to keep going. Find friends on forgood who'll keep you accountable to your vision. Keep up the great work!
