The valley of vision speaks of the distance from your mind to your actions. What you think creates your actions. What you think creates what you can accomplish. What you think is your strongest ally or distractor. How can you control the distance? Shorten the time? Close the gap? Jump the valley? How can you fill your thinking with what it needs to create your best actions?
I was reading You Squared Chapter 9 this morning. It was about focusing on ends rather than means. The phrase and concept of a quantum leap runs goosebumps up and down my arms. Sign me up – I am ALL in! Here is a sentence that caught my eye: If you have the answers and structure and certainty up front, it’s not a quantum leap.
Don’t you just love the risk taking, hip-shooting and making it up as you go? Uncertainty has its rewards. It’s loaded with rocks to jump over in the valley. Allow some disorder in the vision.
Don’t get too concerned about the step-by-step or how to make it happen. Remember your quantum leap, by definition, means moving into uncharted valley, with no map or guide. You draw up the plans as you go. Just keep your eyes on the prize and where you are going to land.
