Which is more necessary?
I think some leaders make vision vs quick wins seem mutually exclusive. Both are important.
Because vision leaks, we must always be motivating our tribes with reminders of what it will look like when our mission is accomplished. On the other hand, we must make sure we are making progress and quick wins along the path to seeing our vision fulfilled.
If people don’t feel like they are winning, the vision doesn’t matter no matter how grand the vision is.
If people don’t have a vision worth aiming for, showing up isn’t fun either.
The challenge then is to build a team that will keep vision high, but also be in the trenches ensuring advance is happening.
Easy to say, hard to sustain.
