Your 10–Year Vision

Writing a vision authentic to you takes time and practice, so be generous and let go of needing it to be perfect the first time. Try out different ways of writing your 10-year  vision–just the facts, a story of your day 10 years in the future, a party where people are acknowledging you–there’s no wrong way to write YOUR vision. You’ll know that you’re  heading in the right direction when you are excited and nervous reading it. Don’t forget  to take a look at the work you’ve completed already on the previous worksheets.  These exercises connect you to who you want to be and what’s important for you 10 years in the future. Write your first draft on the next page.

Mind Map 

This is a simple, yet powerful exercise. In order to set goals in health, personal, and career  it’s helpful to know what each of these domains of your life mean to you. This will support  you in clarifying what will be important to include in your vision & goals.  

within or around each circleanswer the questions

• What is ideal in my health/personal life/career? 

• What does health/personal/career mean to me? 





Working back from 10 years to 5 years and then 1 year in the future.  Post this sheet up where you can see it every day. Have it influence your choices.  Remember you can change ANYTHING in your vision & goals ANY TIME you want.  


This will help you focus on the steps it takes to get you to your vision and goals. Choose one 10 year goal.  Next write down the action steps needed to get to your goal. Then repeat for all domains (personal, career and health) to complete the first draft of your goals! 

Now What?

The practice of setting your vision & goals is just that: a practice. You will find that your  vision expands as you practice the art of removing perceived constraints (“I don’t have  the money/time/knowledge”) and get more connected to what you truly want. Your goals  will become more courageous and exciting.  

By simply focusing on what you want, you will be aware of opportunities around you that  help you achieve your goals. 


At a later date, do all the exercises again – see what remains the same  and see what has changed. Ask “why?” Get curious. 

Print out your vision & goals and post them in a place you frequent daily  

so that you read them and increase your connection to them. 

Share your vision & goals with your friends and family – ask them to support you. 

When making a decision, ask yourself if your choice leads you closer to, or further  away from your vision. 

Take a look at your 1-year goals. This is where ALL the action happens. What you could do this  week to move closer to a goal? Schedule it now. 

Stay present to enjoy the journey along the way.
