Vision Vs. Goals

Written by: Samuel Oppong Jr, Executive Contributor

Executive Contributors at Brainz Magazine are handpicked and invited to contribute because of their knowledge and valuable insight within their area of expertise.


Goals are individual experiences and accomplishments you strive for. A vision is the bigger picture. Your life’s vision defines who you want to be, what you want to be known for and the set of experiences and accomplishments you aim for. Your vision helps define the goals by giving you a framework to evaluate those goals. Your vision becomes your why.

Your vision should aim to answer questions like:

  • What life do you want to have lived at age 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70 and 80?

  • What kinds of people do you want to be surrounded by?

  • What do you believe you’re capable of in life? What are the greatest things you could accomplish, given the right circumstances, resources and motivation?

  • What do you wish you could change about the world?

  • What could you contribute to the world that would make you feel proud and content? ‒ When you die, what would you want people to say and remember about you? Ask yourself: Are you ready to be challenged today?
