“He did see it,” Vance said, “and that is precisely why we are here today!”
Before every great undertaking, someone has a vision. The army commander, a strategy. The football coach, a game plan. The artist, a picture in
the mind’s eye.
In business, too many are following schedules, attending meetings, anxiously responding to cell phones, and other urgencies. They are dominated
by routine, often trivial activities. Something’s missing.
A clear vision is missing. Vision is a perception of what you want to do, and what you want to become.
A vision will do five things:
1. Define the mission by providing choices, facilitate making productive decisions, and setting priorities.
2. Bring design to life and work. First a conception. Then thinking about it and meditating on it.
3. Provide dynamic: energy, motivation, a sense of conquest.
4. Set your direction. You’ll know where you’re headed, and you’ll have a map to get there.
5. Supply structured guidance.
A vision is conceived in the secret place of your mind where you think about it, pray about it, and meditate on it. After this period of mental, emotional, and spiritual gestation, your vision will be born.
“Where there is no vision, the people perish.” Proverbs 29:18 KJV
