How Big is Your Vision?

In a cartoon there are two Eskimos sitting on chairs who are fishing through holes in the ice.

The Eskimo on the right has draped his line through the hole and the hole is the typical opening, about the size of a small man hole.

The Eskimo on the left has his line in the water. He too is waiting calmly for a nibble. His hole is absolutely immense. It is about the size of a crater, it is in the shape of a whale.

Now that is what you call vision. This guy probably is getting laughed at by his fellow fishermen. They might think he is a nut. They might even be saying, “How greedy can you get! Talk about a show off.” But you have got to hand it to him. You have got to admit he is thinking big. Think of all the time he has spent preparing for his catch. He has probably worn out three chainsaws just hacking through all that ice, and there is nothing that will tug on that line that he won’t be able to handle.

How big is your vision? Are you thinking differently or are you running along some old groove? Are you preparing a great big hole in the ice in anticipation of a great bit catch?
