Before I retired, I worked at a company that came up with a 2020 vision, laying out what they wanted to achieve by the time 2020 rolled around. As I recall, the plan was developed at least a decade in advance of 2020. At the time, that particular date seemed so far away, but here it is!
I've lost track of whether they actually achieved what they planned, but I do know that each new year brings the opportunity to start with a clean slate and with new goals. Looking forward to what might be accomplished in 2020.
