In this episode, we analyze the transformational effects of setting a powerful vision.

We analyze several examples of companies that made their own and their customers' lives easier by providing a clear, short, and concise vision of how they conduct their business and what values they expect to deliver. We also look closely into a few details to consider when writing our personal vision, the pitfalls to avoid, and why it is crucial to check and review our vision from time to time.
