The vision of a team must frame up a picture of the future. It’s a goal or target that is still a distance away. Great teams understand that distance. They can see the target and do not make the mistake of acting as if the target has already been achieved just because it is in the line of sight. Vision should illuminate a path to a better future. That means steps need to be taken and not skipped to make the vision a reality. Ordinary teams make the mistake of seeing the goal without the distance. There is no entitlement to the vision without the path.
