“Having 20/20 vision does not necessarily mean you
have perfect vision. 20/20 vision only indicates the
sharpness or clarity of vision at a distance.”
• -American Optometric Association
Exactly one year ago (11/22/2019) I gave a presentation at work on 2020 Vision: Clear and Sharp Goal Setting. I was inspired by Auntie Oprah who was preparing a tour focused on transformation and triumph for the upcoming year.
The presentation focused on three themes:
After each of the themes were explained, the group was asked to reflect and think about the following questions:
- What makes us feel energized, connected, and empowered about the work we do?
- What steps will we take to ensure our collective impact remains energizing, connected and empowering for ourselves, teams and external partners?
My colleagues left the meeting with a goal planning template to get their 2020 Vision going. HA!!! No one saw this coming; the year that would be like none other. A year that would devastate and torment so many people across the world.
The COVID- 19 crisis has blurred my 2020 Vision and shifted my focus to the aspects that really matter the most to me. My mental health, family and finances have always been my priorities but something about living through a pandemic magnifies their importance.
Although we are in November, 2020 and its lasting impacts are far from over. How are you staying energized, connected and empowered about the things that matter most to you? What are your priorities for 2021?
Hello and welcome to Mommy Scoreboard. It’s been several years but I remember starting my college application essay with the sentence, “You can always find me with a pen in one hand a basketball in the other.” I enjoy writing but the sport of basketball has been my ultimate joy. Fast forward and now I am the proud parent of three children, a happily married woman and an accomplished recreational basketball player. If I had to update my essay sentence it would read, “You can always find me with a pen, a basketball, a kid or two, a mobile device, a skillet, random toy part, a sippy cup, baby wipes, hand sanitizer and face masks in my hands”…WOW, have times gotten better!
