I can see clearly now.

I can’t believe it is 2020. Welcoming a new year can be a great time to look ahead toward a bright future. But looking ahead may not be enough to ensure we see clearly.

For a long time, people have used the term 20/20 vision to describe perfect eyesight. The ability to see clearly. But when it comes to eyesight the term vision is incorrectly used. When describing eyesight we should say we have 20/20 Visual Acuity.

We can be successful with less than perfect Visual Acuity. There many ways to correct Visual Acuity. Glasses, contact lenses, a variety of surgical procedures, and other types of visual aids.

Vision, on the other hand, can be defined as: “the act or power of anticipating that which will or may come”. Yet there is only one way to improve our vision. By opening our minds to new ideas and new possibilities.

Despite medical advances, clear vision is something that seems to be lacking in modern society. It seems that people are more interested in looking back. When we close our minds to new ideas and end up thinking “That is the way is supposed to be.” Or “We tried it before, it didn’t work.”. We begin to lose our vision. Instead, we choose to see things as we wish them to be rather than the possibility of what can be.

While a New Year may not do anything to help our 20/20 Visual Acuity. For the New Year, we should pledge to open our minds, open our hearts and make 2020 the year of clear vision.

 Good morning Joseph. Must say, even at my age, don't need glasses and don't have 20/20 in both eyes. And yes, sometimes I also struggle for clear vision. The eyes tend to see only what the mind is willing to accept. Enjoy your day!

When I was in my corporate job and someone who'd been around forever would say "Well, that's how it's always been done," I knew whatever it was needed to be looked at with new eyes. EVERYTHING changes. Staying open to that helps us be successful in life and business.

Happy New Year!

Hey Joseph Domino 480-390-6011 of lordy I can so relate to this post!  I've always been up for new ideas and plans and fun!  And I also know some folks that are doing the same stuff they were doing 30 years ago - and the thinking is the same. It's good to have vision - and then more vision! Here's to an awesome 2020!

Hi Joseph and Happy New Year. Your post reminded me of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. Butch told Sundance "I have vision and the rest of the world wears bifocals." Well done.

Vision can be accomplished by ... "Opening our minds to new ideas and new possibilities."
