I'm feeling sad, scared, lonely, cold and anxious about the future, yet I'm also hopeful, excited, and wondering. The negative feelings come from the place that I am in now...perpetually broke, living in a rundown building, driving a potentially lethal car, barely making enough to pay my bills every month, and seeing all of my friends/family/coworkers make more than I do. I know it's been a lesson in humility which has been
On the flip side of that, I sent my vision statement (and resume) to my buddy in China yesterday and haven't yet heard back from him...halfway around the world, It's insane that I sent it to him there!
Here is my vision:
We live in a dynamic world where the opportunities and chances we take today can have a great impact on the future that we create. I have always been driven to challenge the norms, to push for innovation, and to create efficiencies wherever possible. In every scenario, I have done these things. I’ve questioned protocols to check to see if they could be improved; I’ve streamlined processes to help the office become more productive. I constantly have ideas on what’s next and I am an asset to any team.
Working in the non-profit realm, I also have a strong sense of community and helping others. I work at an art gallery/community school of the arts and the greatest thing about my job is that I get to empower creativity on a daily basis.
I want to continue this trajectory of investment in the lives of those around me and change the world in the process. I want to make it more efficient, practical, smarter, and safer. I also want to make lots of money so I can invest in the next generation, and I want to create something tangible to cherish.
I’d like to look back at my life and know that I perpetuated an idea that revolutionized the way we build X or create Y. Along with creating deep and long lasting relationships, I’d like for that to be my largest accomplishment and gift to the world.
