Is there a difference between a dream and a vision?
Reality dictates that while visions are comprised of dreams, dreams are not visions. Dreams are flights of fancy. Visions are directives.
To my way of thinking, vision is becoming — you dream of possibility and you seek to put it into action.
Should we care if we dream or we envision? Yes.
Dreams are drifts of the imagination, as if one imaginary clouds in the sky. Visions are scripted efforts to effect change. They occur personally and organizationally.
Dreams are nice; visions are work.
Entrepreneurs are those who turn the dream into a plan — a vision that they make real, either as a business, a process or something entirely new and different.
A visionary is one who sees potential in an idea — not always his or her own — and sees its possibilities.
Visionaries power our future. Visionaries turn dreams into practice and in this way make the world different for themselves and the rest of us.
