MSub60: What is 20/20 Vision?

MSub60: What is 20/20 Vision?

I got to see Frozen II with my niece and Dad before Christmas. As well as being a great movie, it has a great song in it too, called Into the Unknown.

We ourselves are heading into the unknown of a new year and new decade.

I’d like to start this new year and new decade by looking at 20/20 Vision.

What is 20/20 Vision?

20/20 Vision is the ability to see from 20 feet distance what someone should normally be able to see from 20 feet away. Compare that to 20/100 where someone from 20 feet away can only see what someone would normally be able to see from a 100 feet distance.

20/20 Vision does not mean perfect vision. It does mean that you have an ability to see things with clarity.

What does 20/20 look like for you in terms of the year you want to have? It does not have to be perfect. Just a picture with clarity that you can work towards.

What are the benefits for you having 20/20 Vision for the year ahead?

Numerous psychologists such as Scott Barry Kaufman (and previous Inspo blogs) have outlined evidence that suggests that being inspired by a vision is linked to greater levels of motivation, productivity and positive emotion.

There is no guarantee of a brilliant year because you know how you want this year to be.

However if like me you feel you’ll be better for having 20/20 rather than 20/100 Vision in terms of a picture for year ahead, than take action.

Draw it. Write it down. Capture the picture or narrative for your life that you want towards making a reality throughout the year.

And may you be always the better for this exercise throughout the year.
