Avoid Rabbit Trails

One of the chapters in the book is called Anti-Visionary Processes which talks a lot about going on rabbit trails. Sometimes the fact that you are smarter, have access to more communication, more choices and more talents is confusing. On an average day you could be pulled into so many different directions. What I say is stay focused! If you master a one thing then you can learn, focus, and master many things. When you try to do them all at once and you’re not sure, you can get dragged in different directions, and usually nothing great ever comes out of that. That ball of confusion is very common in this world. Don’t be a victim; learn how to overcome rabbit trails by staying focused on your vision.


Build Your Committee

Recently I was at a conference speaking about Strategic Visionary Planning and signing some of my books that were freshly printed. Then, on an impromptu basis, I asked if anyone was interested in joining the book committee. By the way, there was no book committee at the time. The initiative had never been designed. There was only the vision. In response, seven intellectual and influential people said, “I would love to be on the book committee.” Since then we have already held our first committee call and received some great feedback on the book in addition to ideas on how to get the book into the hands of people who need it. Their resources times the resources of the people that they know are now becoming a power source for the vision of this book, and it continues to grow.

The point I’m trying to make is you too can connect pieces like that just by introducing and sharing your vision to others and asking even on a volunteer basis who wants play a role in a final result.
