A Vision of a Better Future – one of our most magnetic gifts.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

We have all found ourselves inspired by leaders' visions of 'a better future'. Even if we did not take action and 'join the cause', we were inspired by the fact the cause existed. Such is the essence of leadership.

You cannot drive people when you work them into a fog.

Nor can you expect people in a fog to generate much internal drive.

Nor will people in a fog drive one another around toward specific destinations.  

People get nervous when they are being driven in a fog.

People get nervous when they are driving in a fog...well...at least the ones that notice the fog get nervous.

Vivid Vision: the antidote to business fog.

Dreams of a better future light the path to that better future.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

"Past and future are dreams; now is a reality. All things are now; all power, all possibility, all action, is now."

British author/philosopher James Allen said that in 1903. It seems to me Allen's advice is a key to what most people refer to as 'time management'. I mean, if people pay more attention to the present and less attention to agonizing over the past and worrying about the future then they will feel less stressed...and they will feel like they have more time.

On the other hand, we should not be too harsh on dreamsonly dreams of a better future generate that future. As 2 examples, Marconi proved this...so did Martin Luther King Jr.

Shared dreams and goals, naturally, breed quality communication.
