der to focus on what matters most and follow through
on your commitments. Together they will help you take
your team and organization where you want to go.

KEEP THE VISION ALIVE
To understand the importance of keeping your vision
alive, let's look at marathon runners. The fewest number of people quit a marathon in the first mile. And
the second fewest runners quit in the last mile. I would
expect a lot to quit in the last mile because, by that
point, they have been running the longest and should
be the most physically tired. But they don't quit because they are so close to the finish line. They don't
changing. But we do have a North Star that will guide
us. We don't have a perfect road map. But we have a
path forward and we have each other. Let's keep our
eyes on the North Star and keep moving forward.
Sharing a vision and a North Star is
important because everyone needs

a vision of where they are going, and they keep running towards it. It shows the power of the mind and

If you have only a telescope, then you'll be thinking
about your vision all the time and dreaming about the
future but not taking the necessary steps to realize it.
If you have only a microscope, then you'll be working
hard every day, but setbacks and challenges will likely
frustrate and discourage you because you'll lose sight
of the big picture.
You need to frequently pull out your telescope to remind yourself and your team where you are going. And

marathon in the 20th mile. That is
where they are physically tired and
mentally drained. They have run far
and still have a long way to go. They
lose their vision and so they give up.
When I speak to companies, schools,
and organizations, I encourage the
participants to write down when

they experience their 20th mile. We all have a 20th
mile. Then, I encourage them to write down the words
