A vision or a dream?

“A vision without a task is but a dream, a task without vision is drudgery, a vision with a task is the hope of the world.”–On the cornerstone of a church in England, dated 1730… Author unknown.

Good morning! I felt so blessed to stumble across this quote that has existed in stone for centuries and traveled across oceans to be shared with us. If you take the time to read it, and really think it through, there is so much truth to the simple words. Often, we have great visions – but we do not break down the tasks to complete them. Other times we have tasks, but we don’t have a vision or purpose to make them fulfilling. Combine a vision with proper tasks, and we become engines and vehicles of change.

Your turn:
What is your vision? Don’t let it be just a dream. Take a few moments today to consider your action steps. Take the next step.

Your affirmation:
I change the world through my vision and my action steps.

  1. I absolutely love this, and ohhh how true it is! I always seem to have one or the other (vision or tasks), but they rarely seem to come together for some reason. But that is changing!!

  2. Love the new website! Your daily emails are so inspiring! Great job! You’re living your vision!

  3. This is an interesting quote and it truly made me think!! You have to match your visions and your actions. Without one another they lack life and direction and then we will lack life and direction.

    Thanks for making me think!!
