Vision is valuable—but focus is essential.
Vision is where you want to go. Focus is what you need to do.
Vision is later. Focus is now.
Vision is the next 24 months. Focus is the next 24 hours.
People spend significant portions of their lives in one of two extremes: 1. vision without focus or 2. focus without vision. The first is too broad, resulting in unfulfilled dreams and constant disappointment. The second is too narrow, resulting in lack of direction and missed opportunities.
Instead of one or the other—do both. Have faith in what is possible someday, and do what is necessary today. Believe in vision. Live in focus.
Vision needs energy—not clarity. Vision won't help you execute, but it does energize you to move forward into an uncertain future. Focus provides the clarity of action that sustains the pursuit of a vision.
What you want to achieve must first be executed. Your focus the next 24 hours is what creates your vision the next 24 months.
How might the vision you achieve in the end be different than the one you imagine in the beginning?
