    Great thoughts, Josh. I’d recommend two different HBR articles for anyone further interested – “What leaders really do” by John Kotter, and “Building you company’s vision” by Collins and Porras. Both touch on this significantly. I’m still wrestling with how an Army leader can make audacious 10-30 year visionary goals that stick in an organization with turnover as high as that of a tactical level organization. Ostensibly, a Chief of Staff of the Army can do this for the entire strategic component, but the difference is singularity of mission/focus. I’d love anyone else’s thoughts on the matter!

      Thanks, JJ! I look forward to checking out those resources. I’m still learning about thinking and acting strategically as a leader, no matter what level I’m currently serving at; that really involves creating and living out org vision.
      I’m actually looking to create a vision 2.0 blog post in the coming months too to further share what I’m still learning on the matter and how we can all get better at this idea of org. Vision.
      I appreciate the support, brother!
