Long sighted vision is my strength. But it is also a weakness. I am so focused on the long-term that I trip over small barriers in the short term.
That said, I think it is better to have long-term vision rather than short-term vision. As the exquisitely produced below diagram shows, short short-term vision will not foresee potentially huge barriers in the far-future.
Long term vision does not see small barriers in the near-future
As a result of this realisation I am starting to take 2 actions:
- I am taking advantage of my long-term vision to plan properly. In other words, I am, and have been for several weeks, forgeing a detailed business plan for Ambisonia. I am seeking help from various business professionals, and the ‘future Ambisonia’ is starting to take a very (financially) defined shape.
- I am starting to seek outside help for delivering projects in the short term. I am basically contracting work out to others. This is expensive, but I am gambling that it will pay off (in both timeliness and quality).
