BC - Purpose and Vision

Hi, I’m Lee Hayden,  website owner, manager, and author .  Welcome to the Hayden Center For Educational Excellence.  

The Hayden Center  offers students a variety of educational programs of study, each  program leading to an opportunity to  experience a unique  form of  lifestyle  enrichment.  Click here to review the available programs of study, courses, durations, and costs.  Contact Lee Hayden at 707-945-1294 if you have questions.

The two highest lifestyle goals of  the Hayden Center are inherent in the two programs, “The Personal True-Self” and “The Community True-Self”.  The top level commonality of these two programs is that they are both designed to help the student create and discover a personally  enriched lifestyle. An enriched lifestyle is characterized by 1) a sense of awesomeness, wonderment, and astonishment resulting from our experience of a reality vastly greater than ourselves, 2) a sense of humility deeply rooted in the recognition that all people are part of the fabric of reality and are physically connected, and 3) and very high moral intelligence . The Personal True-Self program focuses on the  self in the reality created by self-organizing universe; the Community True-Self program is an extension of the Personal True-Self program and focuses on the  self in the midst of others.

Achievement of the Hayden Center  programs  goals is a very challenging and sometimes  lengthy process requiring considerable dedication.  However, the personal benefits obtained are well-worth the effort.

This free brief course  introduces  key theoretical aspects related to the importance,  meaning, and development of both personal and organizational vision statements. The fee-based associated short course 1) expands the theoretical structure and meaning of a new vision of reality, 2) presents the dynamic nature of a person’s vision during their lifespan, and 3) helps the student craft their vision statements for each presently existing lifestyle role.

The prerequisites to maximize benefits from this short course are:  1) a basic understanding of reality as defined by the self-organizing universe paradigm and 2) a basic understanding of the pillars of high self-esteem.

  I’m Lee Hayden and I commit  to making this a course of high quality and exceptionally beneficial to you.

Your personal vision is important because

it sees you carrying-out  your  purpose.

Every human being is endowed with the physical capacity of vision by which they are capable of seeing surrounding objects.  In addition, every human being is also endowed with the mental capacity of visualization by which they are capable of producing  desired images in their imagination.  For purposes of becoming our personal true-self or community true-self, we associate both of these capacities with our vision. Thus, we assert that a person’s vision is capable of seeing objects existing not only in the present physical environment, but also existing as mental images in the present or future environment via that person’s imagination.

For our purposes, the object seen will be another person, ourself, or a group of people.  For example,  our vision 1) may physically see  another person as other people see that person, 2) may shift into imagining another person with new behaviors because of our influence. Additionally,  our vision may imagine seeing our future changed selves  as we implement our purpose driven life. Creating new visions of reality and observing visions becoming reality is one path to creating a more meaningful life for ourself and others.

As individual human beings challenged by complex living environments, each of us has created or acquired a unique life characterized by unique personality attributes including personal belief system, set of values, purpose, and vision.  In addition to our basic personal relationships, we are affiliated with  multiple business, religious, political, and social organizations. For each organizational affiliation, we have different roles characterized by different personality attributes. For example, our belief system and set of values as CEO of a large corporation may differ dramatically from our belief system and set of values as a family person.  In this context (and not in a psychological diagnostic context), we have multiple personalities and multiple visions.  Sometimes they are in conflict.  We need a separate vision statement for each of our lifestyle roles.

  Consequently, we may have multiple visions as a member of various organizations and as a part of leadership. Any organization of people has a stated or unstated (unrecognized) vision. Many organizations are managed by a single person such as a business organization’s CEO, school district superindendant,  fund raising organization’s leader,


A vision statement reflects beliefs that are especially important to a person and guide that person’s journey through life.  A vision is usually constructed from  a person’s purpose in life and/or personal set of values.  Thus, a vision statement may be viewed as a summary reflecting that person’s purpose and/or  values. The set of values are written out, prioritzed, and then the top several values are  transformed into a short statement which has the potential of becoming the vision statement. Usually, multiple iterations of the process occur  before the desired vision sattement is solidified.

A vision statement is important because all statements characterizing a personal or an organization’s CEO must be derivable from the vision statements.  For example, a vision statement is generally accompanied by a high level and brief mission statement which is derived from the vision statement and describes the methodology of accomplishing the vision.In turn, the CEO develops a business plan

For analytical purposes, it is useful to assume that all people experience their life in development phases: birth, childhood, adolescence, maturity, scenescence, and death. For present purposes, birth and death are not considered.   Each development phase contributes major changes to our  personal theory about the world and self. Our analysis can be even further simplied by assuming that in each development phase, a person conforms to their  environment, adapts to it, or learns from and changes their environment.

 For simplicity, this theory shall be call our world-self theory. This theory is closely related  our personal belief system.

What does your personal vision see?

  1.   Your personal vision sees you walking straight and tall.
  2.   First of all,  your personal vision  sees you acting in a very civilized manner.  It is claimed by Dr. M. Scott Beck that we are a deeply ailing society.  Our illness is incivility.  Our incivility is much woarst than a mere impoliteness. Morally destructive patterns of self-absorption,  callousness,  manipulateness,  and materilism are so ingrained in our behvior that we often do not recognize them. In multiple ways we engage in subtle forms of unconscious hurtfulness to ourselves and others.  Unfortunately, such behaviour has become the norm in American society.
