“Where there is no vision, the people perish.” ~ Proverbs 29:18
You can’t say you have a vision just because you have some short term goals. You need those short term goals along the way, but where are you going? What is your long term vision?
In our lives, if we have no clear vision we tend to wander. In a home with no clear vision, the children have no clear direction. In a church with no vision, the members become stagnant and indifferent. In a business with no clear vision, the employees go through the motions and morale suffers.
It should be clear. If the organization you are leading has no clear vision, your organization will suffer and stumble along. People want to have something to work for. They want to have a reason for coming in everyday besides simply making another dollar. Providing goals are an important part of that equation, but at some point as a leader you must provide a vision and it must be clear.
Are you providing a vision for your employees for those you are leading? If not, when do you expect to start?
"The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision." ~ Helen Keller
