Notes: 00‑00 | Big Vision
Why have a Big Vision?
The Big Vision is the goal beyond the horizon. When we aim for the Big Vision, each step moves us closer, and we see the path ahead more clearly. That is why we have a Big Vision.
It helps us hone our direction, so that we focus on what matters. Our path grows more direct, our Journey shorter. We can go farther on the same effort, and achieve more than we imagined possible.

Create a Shared New Way
When an entire community is faced with sweeping change, it is best to have the community create a shared new way together. This requires clear and disciplined coordination, but increases the calibre of success.
By working together to solve their problems, the community comes to understand more deeply what they need to innovate and why. They are also better equipped to use their innovation consistently, and fully enjoy its benefits.

Scene: 1, Prologue
It was a clear night and the stars were many, some burning steady, others flashing an ancient message over and over: The Journey must continue . . .
In the ancient forests of Model County, the sentinel trees stood reaching for the stars, as they had for as long as anyone could remember. Softly, their leaves began to rustle, receiving the message and passing it on . . . all the way to the far terrace in Legacy Park, where a woman sat alone, listening for an answer.
Vanessa Alvares leaned back against the park bench. She had chosen this terrace for its quiet as well as its sweeping view. Even so, she could still hear the music and laughter from the pavilions up above. She smiled.
After five generations, they had finally achieved the Vision and created the “Better World” they had all dreamed about for so long. And though it was but a tiny corner of the globe — just the towns, communities and natural habitat that made up Model County — it was a huge step forward, and proof that it could be done . . .
We cannot create a Better World if we keep starting over. We have to aim for the horizon, and keep going to the Visions Beyond.”
— Vanessa Alvares (Founders IV – The Worldwide Hunt),
