You may have seen articles and blogs this year connecting your personal or company vision for the year 2020 with having 20/20 eyesight.
Yes, it’s cute. But it actually goes much deeper than the play on words (or numbers in this case).
20/20 vision means you can see clearly. And your 2020 vision needs to be crystal clear. How will your organization get there if we don’t know where we’re going?
To make your 2020 vision clear, you need to know exactly what it will look like when you achieve it. That’s why it’s called a vision.
Many organizations make the mistake of making their vision too general. That means it’s blurry. No one really knows what it looks like.
My favorite example of a strong vision that became reality is from Microsoft. Their first vision was: “There will be a personal computer on every desk running Microsoft software.” It simple, clear and easy to remember. It seemed impossible when they created it, yet it happened.
20/20 vision means you can see clearly for both short distances and long distances. Your organization’s vision needs to have short-term goals and a long-term strategy.
What are your goals this month to move you toward your vision? What’s the bigger strategy or areas of focus this year that will ensure you achieve your vision?
When you have 20/20 vision, you shouldn’t take it for granted. Anyone who wears glasses or contact lenses can attest to this.
You never want to take your organization’s vision for granted either. So many organizations put the time and effort in to create a vision, then a year later, it’s nowhere to be seen.
Your vision should take longer than a year to achieve or it’s not big enough. It’s the destination for your organization – that means focusing on it every single day until you get there.In this year of 2020, let’s start the decade off right. Let’s make a clear, 20/20 vision in 2020. And focus on it becoming something we can finally see.
