“Not fitting in” is a good thing. It might feel painful, but it means that you’re creating something bigger.
A visionary path is invisible to ordinary eyesight. We can only see it with our inner eyes.
Without a vision, it’s easy to spend all our time reacting to and attempting to solve an endless array of problems. We have no broader perspective in which to hold what happens.
Your organization will never feed your soul, but your vision will. Your work is bigger than the institution in which you’re employed. A vision is the sanctuary that you can turn to for inspiration and support.
