A challenge faced in envisioning a goal is the difficulty imagining the conditions that have to be true in the future if the goal is to be met. How can we fully envision the texture of such a future state? What are the conditions that need to be in place in order to accomplish the goal? The backcast helps guide in building a detailed action plan that illuminates obstacles and details accomplishments and the steps needed to achieve them.
