D is a workbook that gives the reader a calculated guide to vision achievement.

The steps to vision achievement in the book have become known as the ASAPP Process: ASK- Probing Questions SEE - Make the Assessment ACT - Write Your Vision Action Plan PRAY - Agree to Achieve PLAN - Work the Plan In Write the Vision Griggs emphasizes that; God has made men in His image and in His likeness. Therefore, since God writes, we ought to write as well. Griggs reasons also that we should continue to write until it moves us into the realm of our dreams. Writing helps to bring about a clear picture of where we want to be. It provides us with a path that takes us from start to finish. For Griggs just as the Bible paints a clear roadmap for the believer to follow to get into heaven, having a written plan will give you a clear roadmap for achieving your vision on earth also.
