How to Stick to Your Big Vision

Posted by Les Ellison  ·  Be the first to comment

Here's the problem Andy Stanley's 'Making Vision Stick' sets out to solve: "Vision is about what could be and should be, but life is about right this minute."

This is one of those books that prove the biggest, most important ideas need the fewest words. It’s only 80 pages of well spaced, easy to read text, but take the advice to heart, and it'll save you buying longer book (on rediscovering your vision) in a few months time. Andy Stanley tells how important – and how difficult, it is to keep to your vision once reality takes your eye to another, lesser focus. “Vision,” he says, “doesn’t stick without constant care and attention.” And there’s plenty of evidence out there in businesses, ideologies, churches and individuals that have forgotten what they’re about and chased after some more mundane, easily achieved or just self gratifying goal.

Andy gives the best ways to help you get your vision to stick, and ways to help you stick to your vision. It looks simple: define your vision clearly, rejoice in each success and put your vision into practice in your own life… often the hardest one to do, but the number of wrecked dreams, disaffected churches and lost initiatives suggest otherwise. A big tip, apparently, is to get your vision statement right for you and your church; it must be simple, memorable, but too long to remember! This book might be only a short read but it’s long on passion and purpose. That makes it a worthwhile read if you’re about to present your vision to those whose passion is essential if you’re going to acheive your purpose.
