Where (Situation and Vision)


Where? (Situation and Vision)

“Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.” Seneca

In language where relates to place.

Therefore ‘Where?’ is the present location and the future destination, the situation and the vision. We look at whence we have come from and whither are we going as our journey is bracketed by these ideas of ‘where’. When you get out a map the first thing you do is identify where you are and get your bearings; only once you have done this do you plan to move. And when you move, you don’t want to wander aimlessly (as movement in itself is not progress), there needs to be a destination, something we are aiming for. This destination is the dream, the thing that stokes our passion and gives us our drive.

Where is considered with what and why under STRATEGIC FRAMING.
