As you will tell from my website, I am very hot on you finding your vision and then putting into place the plans to reach that vision.
This gives the impression that the trajectory is a straight line: you start at point A and put in place all the steps as far ahead as you can see on the way to point Z. And that is exactly what you should do, even if you can only see your next 3 or 4 actions.
However, when you finally get to point Z and look back, you will probably find that instead of a lovely straight road, your route was more roundabout and very different to what you had expected. Along the way, you have found someone who loves what you do and introduces you to a whole new audience; you take part in a small event just as it becomes “the place to be”; you produce a piece of work which goes viral… Who knows that the things are along the way, big or small, which will get you to your goal.
You might be saying to yourself, if coincidence and chance are going to be so important, why bother planning and putting so much hard work into your goals?
Because without you showing up, letting people know what you need, sharing your enthusiasm and creating your own opportunities, you may not recognise the coincidences and chances when they show up. People won’t know what you are doing or be enrolled in your vision.
So, before you sit back on the sofa, put your feet up and hope for the best, just remember what the great movie mogul Samuel Goldwyn once said; “The harder I work, the luckier I get.”
