Vision as a virtue means to be able to see past the obvious and mundane and recognize other paths and possibilities. It’s the more practical sister to inspiration, perhaps. says: Unusual competence in discernment or perception; intelligent foresight: a leader of vision.

Though the spiritualist version of vision is all about supernatural movies in one’s head, I think most people have a less spectacular version of vision. Vision doesn’t have to involve literally seeing things, even if we say, “I had a vision”. It can be every bit as elaborate as Saint Peter and the sheet, or as simple as a sudden burst of clarity about a situation and the best course of action. Vision is important because it helps focus us and keeps us motivated. Without clear vision, it’s hard to make any forward progress in a project or even day to day life.
