When Projects Seem Impossible, Add Vision

We’ve made lists for as long as we’ve been able to write.

When we say ‘list’, we can visualize what that looks like. Work we can’t visualize, doesn’t get done:

  • A series of to-dos you can list out and complete can be mapped out and worked through. You can see how many you’ve done, and what’s left. Easy to visualize, easy to do.
  • A series of tasks you can’t mentally visualize, such as complex network relations or projects with multiple in-progress dependencies, are much harder to visualize. Harder to visualize, harder to do.

Without good vision, good work doesn’t get done. Add vision and watch impossible tasks become merely logistical.
