You must have a vision for your life. Your vision must be aligned with your purpose. Your vision gives a direction to your life and endeavors.
This vision must also be well documented so that there is clarity about it. Many people have missed out on accomplishing what they set out to do because they forgot or were missing details of their vision. The documentation of your vision enables you to go back to it over and over again. Therefore it is easier to measure progress.
Invest in a pen and a notepad or keep your smartphone/laptop nearby. This will ensure that you are ready to document details of your vision as they are revealed to you. Then you can run with the vision.
