See Nicole’s Goals: My 10-Year Vision

You can find out a lot about someone through their vision and goals. It’s the place where you put your soul out for folks to see. I have been doing goal work for a very long time, and I still get a little nervous about sharing it. And, I know that it has helped me so many times to see other people’s goals, so here they are!

Vision for 2028

I am at a dining table in our home in Seattle, holding a hot cup of coffee. Our 9-year-old daughter is playing in the yard with friends. Carson is 18, and is upstairs in his room. Our daughters are in college, and text to check in about plans the next time they are home. Coco snoozes out on the deck with my mom, who is drinking coffee and watching her granddaughter play. I can see my dad through the window of their mother-in-law, catching up on the news on TV.

Chris and I chat about when we will head out to our vacation home in Mazama, and also weigh where and when our next sunny vacation will be. I feel content, connected and full of gratitude for the family and life we have created. Chris is in a career he loves at a smaller company where he leads and makes a big impact on the business; he loves his job. I check in with my Maple Path team about our latest launch, preparing to travel to lead workshops sharing the energy tools of Geotran, and trade emails with my editor about my latest book, a memoir on the intersection of movement, energy and Chinese-American identity.

I feel strong, healthy and vibrant. I share the work I do on a global scale. I continue to tithe income every year to charities I am passionate about. I cherish the life I have created, and my family comes first.
