Counterintuitive Vision

Counterintuitive Vision

 "The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision." —Helen Keller


  • Builds when everyone’s downsizing.
  • Attracts top talent.
  • Attracts top investors.
  • Gets you through the tough times.
  • Creates when nothing is there.
  • Sees when no one else can see.
  • Builds when the competition is stagnant.
  • Hires when business is slow.
  • Often counterintuitive.
  • Is never safe.
  • Sleeps with failure on a nightly basis (stares it in the face).
  • Thinks in terms of generations.
  • Strives for excellence day to day.
  • Collaborates and inspires.

Vision is often counterintuitive, not for the faint heart, and demands your all. You may be labeled crazy, bonkers, raving mad, and a myriad of other names. But if you have a true vision, it will stand the test of time.

The caveat: vision without dedication, perseverance, and hard work produces little. Include others in your vision. You may be surprised at what you create.
