Keeping it easy with a clear vision

July 15, 2014

We had just finished filming a shot for the television segment and wanted to capture some different views. I called our contact and asked for more action shots. I wanted b-roll of action, not just students in a classroom. As we briefly talked, I sensed a divide between us.

Then I realized what it was; she didn’t know what I wanted to do. So then I explained that the segment will have the interviewer speaking and then have different videos appear throughout the interview. This will make the segment visually engaging as well as informative. Ideally, it will encourage parents and students to learn more about the program. “Oh, now I understand” she said and immediately had some ideas that fit perfectly.

As I concluded the call, I realized a few important things. The power of a clear vision and being able to articulate it clearly. Personally, I know I can have a vision of what I want, but often articulating it clearly is a challenge. I don’t like to box myself into a certain “thing”. I like to have options so at times I can be a little indecisive. Yet, when I know exactly what I want and can communicate that clearly, everything just falls into place.

It surely makes life easier for all the people I need to work with to achieve a goal as well as makes my life easier as I know what I’m going for. Now here’s the fun part, taking it to a new level. How much different would my life be if I communicated my soulful, heartfelt vision with clarity and ease when I prayed? If the physical can become that much better, how much better can the spiritual?

Hmmm….I have a list of goals to accomplish, I’m going to revisit them from my heart and with clarity. Whether it’s in prayer, to a friend, or someone I just met, I’m going to truly feel what I want and be able to communicate that vision clearly. What fun!

  1. I agree, it’s very important to be specific with your goals. You need to be specific with what you want in life. Otherwise you’re just selling yourself short. How do you expect to hit a mark on the wall if you can’t see the exact spot you’re aiming for? Clearly define what it is in life you want. Be specific with it. It’s not enough to say you want to be happy. You want to be happy because you’re living your passion. You want to be happy because you’re doing something you love everyday.
