Vision Quest
in the human brain; uncertainty is registered as an error in the orbitofrontal cortex.
Thus, uncertainty monopolises the brain, leaving little attention for anything else.
We are surrounded by uncertainty...
But with a vision of your future, you can build your own certainty.
Vision Quest - know where you're going to.
the Vision Quest is a 10 week program designed to:
- equip you to imagine your most desirable future
- enable you to articulate that future
- strategise a process for achieving it
The program consists of a series of personal experiments which take you through learning about yourself in relation to Autonomy, Purpose, Happiness, and Mastery. These experiments are designed to empower you, so that you can formulate a Vision of your future from a place of opportunity, meaning, and strength.
Quester reviews
The vision quest was truly eye opening. It helped me to confirm ideas and thoughts I had in my head regarding my future and the what I need to pursue to realise them. Definitely something anyone who isn't 100% sure of where they are going should do, as it will help one to make those important decisions.

In a stressful, deadline-driven corporate world, one runs the risk of losing sight of why they went into the industry in the first place.
Vision quest is a welcome platform that challenges what personally drives people and rekindles the passion they have to produce great work.

The Vision quest is a helpful platform of tools which enables you to refocus, readjust and realign with your goals and purpose. Sometimes life can become busy and complicated and these simple and practical exercises allow you to take a step back and analyse what it is you want and where you are going. The interesting part of the vision quest is that sometimes things are revealed to you through the exercises that you wouldn't have known before. If you are wanting to challenge the path you are currently on and widen your horizons then this course will assist with that.

The vision quest has a variety of tools and techniques that assisted me in recognising my core purpose and vision. Some techniques are really intriguing and some may seem tedious but ultimately they helped me realise and appreciate small things that occur in daily life that I had ignored or didn't know existed. This process is fulfilling!
The most valuable thing learnt was awareness of FLOW.
Give it a shot, you will definitely learn something new about yourself and others too!

For me, Vision Quest helped me organise my thoughts, find my true goal and I learnt skills to help me navigate my environment.
It allowed me to understand myself and I use that to make me a better me.

A Vivid Vision of your future
When you "lean out" and grab hold of a clear vision for success, you're more likely to achieve your desired goal. A Vivid Vision starts when you plant one foot in the present and then lean out and place the other in the future, the 'what could be'.
the story of the vision quest
In mid 2017 I was approached by a client who requested that I design a Vision Quest for her company - her brief was that she wanted to: get staff to a level where they are happy with their own career path.
I squirmed... I am a business consultant, not a coach, and unless I can see a clear business case for an intervention, I feel like a fraud.
But... she's a great client, and she's really smart, so I pondered.
One of the aspects of my consultancy that fascinates me is the conundrum of human motivation; self motivation, employee motivation, customer motivation, and in my ponderings I started seeing the link between a personal vision & productivity at work.
Social science presents the three primary human motivators as Autonomy, Purpose & Mastery, so; what if I could design a Quest that strengthened participants in these three areas, and then sprinkled it with skills for flourishing / well-being / happiness?
Four months later, after endless hours of research, writing, designing, and editing, the first Vision Quest launched.
The delegates got stuck in, and really seemed to be benefiting, but the big surprise was ME - facilitating the Vision Quest was incredibly energising, I am normally a cheerful person, but suddenly I was operating on a whole new level of vooma and focus. My confidence levels went up, my ability to see solutions and opportunities expanded, and my relationships improved.
And then, my daughter and I were attacked by three armed gunmen, although they only managed to steal my handbag, it was still a fairly traumatic experience, but, I came through it unbowed, and philosophical - due in large part, I am sure, to the influence of the Quest.
The best part is that I have rediscovered old dreams that had been buried under the effort of parenting and earning a living; and now I have a vision for my future which is in bright technicolor and is as exciting and tangible as a trip to Mars.

Flow describes those exhilarating moments when we feel in control, full of purpose, and in the zone.
Popularised by Positive Psychologist Mihály Csíkszentmihályi, the concept of Flow describes an activity which is its own reward and is accepted as a cornerstone of 'wellbeing' or 'the good life'.
For evolutionary reasons, our brains are wired to focus on potential threats, so it is necessary to practice the skill of thinking about the good things in our lives. Once this habit is ingrained, research shows that one's mood is lighter, outlook more positive, and consequently a wider range of opportunities become available.
Meditation gives you perspective: By observing your mind through meditation, you realise that you are not a slave to it. You are able to observe that it throws tantrums, gets grumpy, jealous, happy and sad but that it doesn't have to run you. Meditation is quite simply mental hygiene: clear out the nonsense, tune your talents, and get in touch with yourself.
Everybody's born to be different. That's the one thing that makes us the same. Your strengths are what make you unique, and give you a fair unfair advantage. Explore your character strengths and experiment with ways of using them to make even the most arduous task engaging.
Achievement requires effort, but we are surrounded by stories of huge success in which the achievement looks magical, effortless – this experiment is designed to demonstrate that every-one struggles, but it is those who embrace the struggle and risk failure, who ultimately succeed.
Mastery is not about goals and outcomes, Mastery is about the process.
The work itself - and becoming better and better at it must be what drives you.
It almost doesn't matter what you're doing. It's why you're doing it that matters. Why you do it and subsequently how you do it is what matters.

A sense of purpose results in having a strong sense of who you are, what you stand for, who you stand with, and is long acknowledged as contributing to individual effectiveness.
Understanding the greater impact of your work and why you chose to do it, helps you enjoy tasks more and become more satisfied and happier.
Many years ago, life was linear – you studied a degree in your chosen field, got a job, and served your company or corporation until retirement. These days the options are overwhelming, so how do you choose your path?
