Ben asked, “How do I know when I should change my vision?” It’s a great question that potentially impacts everything we do.
Here’s what I think.
Since mission and vision are driven by values, I’ve made this conclusion. When your values change – change your vision.
I value generous knowledge sharing and relationship development. Currently, my greatest opportunity to express those values is by leveraging Internet technology. Leveraging a blog, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and E-mail are components of a vision that expresses my values.
The only thing with the power to change vision is re-vision of values.
Changing vision without changing values is like dressing a pig in a tux. He might look good for a while but not for long.
What do you think? When should individuals or organizations change their vision? How?
