I wrote the following last December. I reread it today and realized my goal for this year (and I think now for the rest of my life) was well imagined even if not well stated. So, I share it with you again. And I promise another post before 2020 is entombed and 2021 is permitted to blossom in its place.
The year ahead: Should I call it "two thousand twenty" or "twenty twenty?" I choose the latter, with a variation. Let me explain.
20/20 is considered normal vision. It is sharper, more clear than vision that is, say, 20/100--vision at 20/100 means that you must be 20 feet away from a subject to see what a person with normal vision sees from 100 feet away.
I want to see things with normal vision. I know I can accomplish that with corrective lenses. But I want to think that way as well. To do this, I need to seek objective information and look at it with normal vision. Objective information is obtainable, though it takes work to find it amid the misinformation and disinformation that has become so prevalent. But that will be precious work. Worthwhile. I am excited about it. I want it always to apply to my business and my life.
20/20. Join me?
