When do we need vision? During times of growth, change or opportunity – so that we know we're headed in the right direction. We also need vision during times of uncertainty – when we've lost confidence in our leaders, our institutions or ourselves. Instead of focusing on "what's next," we need to refocus on "what's first." Getting back to the basics means knowing who you are, where you're going, and what will guide your journey – having a vision. When work is meaningful and connected to what we truly desire, we tap into a productive and creative power stronger than we ever imagined.
