#261 Visionary Habits that Create Quick Momentum
Do you have a clear vision of what you want out of your business?
We creatives tend to dream big – and contrary to popular belief, that’s actually a gift in business, if you know how to use that energy to generate momentum.
So I’m shocked by how many conversations I’ve had recently with designers and creatives who gave me a blank look when I asked them about their vision.
Without a vision, you’re bound to hit a plateau!
Tbh… I think it was the universe telling me it’s time to record this episode.
So let’s dive into the five steps you should take to start creating visionary habits.

Cast A Broad Vision
Honesty is important when you’re casting a vision for your future.
It can be hard to admit exactly what your vision is, especially when it feels unachievable. But you can’t start working towards those goals until you get real about where you’re at and where you want to be.
Your vision doesn’t have to look any certain way. I know designers who want to build a million-dollar brand, and I know designers who just want the freedom to not worry so much about work and money.
You do you, m’dear!
Once you have a solid vision in your mind, it’s time to make a plan.
It’s much easier to start from your vision and work backwards than to wildly speculate about what the next step should be.
For instance, let’s say your goal is to make one sale on your website every day. You can start by figuring out how much web traffic you need to get one sale, and then figure out how to better drive traffic to your website, etc.
Clarify Your Actions
We all know a plan is nothing without action to back it up!
So many designers waste time and energy on things that are not moving them toward their goals. Your priority should always be the actions you need to take to make your vision a reality.
This may be the hardest step because you have to be consistent every. single. day.
