What questions do you need answered to fulfill your vision?
Recently I was invited to speak on a panel discussion at a real estate event here in Cleveland Ohio. The moderator asked "What questions do you need answered to fulfill your vision?"
I liked the sentiment of the question which I interpreted as what obstacles are you facing that are holding you back from achieving your goals?
However, I found the question to be more personal and less relatable to the audience I was speaking in front of. The audience seemed to like my response so I thought I would share here on BP.
Who remembers growing up as a kid playing on the playground on a teeter totter? You have one side all the way down and the other side all the way up as someone else sits on the other side it starts to balance out. Finding out what you need to fuel your vision is a balance and just like the teeter totter that balance will rarely stay at an equilibrium point. Sometimes in your journey you may need more knowledge, sometimes you need connections. The teeter totter is rarely stagnant, there’s constant motion. This is the path of an entrepreneur.
There are questions that I won’t have the answers to. There will be uncertainty. Challenges will arise. That’s ok. The measure of an entrepreneur is found in the ability to navigate those challenges. You must do more if you want to learn more and in this way the path is illuminated by the walking. Having an experienced coach to act as a guide along that path has been a massive help with that as well.
To give you all an actionable framework for whatever niche you’re in or business you’re working on to fulfill your vision I would recommend focusing on:
Clarity of purpose
