One day a DREAM gave me a darn good reason to want to change
For years I fondly held the memory of my childhood dreams.
Growing up, how I wished the world was different. But in my dreams, there existed a place where people lived peacefully and took care of each other, had a true democracy and used advanced technologies. Yes I loved Star Trek! My dreams had other planets in them and I traveled between the stars.
And I didn’t think those dreams were going to come true.
Vision is my thing; I am a Seer. A Seer is someone who can see a “future picture” with high accuracy. In business, what’s especially important – to performance and success – is whether this future picture is aligned with where the business is starting, and with what management says theyare about compared with what they are actually doing.
While working in investment banking as an equity analyst, I became really good at company analysis and found I was naturally talented at strategy, at strategically viewing the world, a company, its business relationships, it’s operations, Now, and in relation to its “Future Picture”.
The Future Picture as a Component of Business Success
A lack of alignment between Future Picture and Now meant that something was off, and there might not be business success the way management predicted.
Alignment between Future Picture and Now meant the business as an investment by shareholders could be a home run, maybe even a hit out of the park.
