It’s that time of year when the President of the United States delivers his annual address to Congress and the country, reflecting on the reality of where we are now and the direction he plans for us to go over the coming year and beyond.  It’s a snapshot of what’s happening at this point and time in our history; it’s a laundry list of the tasks that lie ahead which is meant to be both specific and visionary.

Since we’re only 25 days into the new year it’s still a good time to think about what you want in the coming 340, so why not take these chilly days to snuggle up with a journal and write a personal state of the union for your life? How are your unique gifts, talents and abilities uniting with your work?  If not utilized in your current job, how you do express them in your everyday life?

How are you connecting and uniting with the people around you – be them family, friends, co-workers or strangers?  How is the internal vision of you are and what you want uniting with the reality of your life at this particular moment? If you could freeze frame your life right now and look at it 10 years from now, what would you think, what would you tweak?  What concrete things do you want to achieve and what is your overall vision for 2011 and beyond?

If you don’t yet have all the answers, a great way to start is by using these questions as a guide, attend the upcoming Visioning Workshop on Feb 5th, or simply give me a buzz and we’ll explore, evaluate, organize and come up with a plan to lobby for and legislate all that you want to accomplish in your own personal corner of the world.  And when you’re done you can do a little dance to the J.Geils Band catchy hit tune which you will then not be able to get out of your head.
