It happened briefly, slightly yesterday, then with feeling today… Apple has passed Exxon-Mobile in market capitalization to become the largest (most valuable) company in the world.
Those of you within earshot of me will remember that last year, I predicted that this would happen by the end of this year. It happened ahead of my prediction.
What did we learn from this? What I said yesterday: Vision trumps everything. Whether you are parenting, teaching, running a business, pastoring, painting, writing,… having a clear, laser-focused vision will produce infinitely better results than trying to guide yourself via surveys, market-studies, feedback, examining data.
Vision, vision, vision. The more you reduce it (simplify it) the better. The clearer (more defined) the better.
Vision trumps everything.
