Why Tunnel Vision Should Not be Mistaken For Narrow-Mindedness
The term tunnel vision often carries with it implied negative connotations, as if to suggest elements of seclusion, inflexibility, and rigidity. If one’s internal lens is adjusted in such a way so as to fixate on pessimism — then yes — this may, in fact, offer a congruent interpretation or definition to an individual or culture of thinking.
However, if one chooses to possess or adopt the mindset that operates from a sphere of deduction or extrapolation, may I then suggest shifting your mindset to consider an alternative version of contemplation?
What if tunnel vision is merely a mechanism or a tool you can reach for out of your expansive toolbox to navigate you on the path of purposeful vision?
How might you be better positioned to impactfully serve yourself, thus serving others, by electing to choose and to embrace tunnel vision as nothing other than a transfixed vehicle to teleport you from ‘YOUR’ point A to ‘YOUR’ point Z with precision focus?
If even being receptive to this shift in paradoxical thinking further propels you in your intended direction of successfully achieving your goals and objectives — is this not advantageous or perceivably a win-win for both you and the collective?
If this helps to expedite those on the receiving end more efficiently and satisfactorily benefiting from whatever your message, your service, or your finished product is, then is it not our inherent responsibility as the leader, the creator, the messenger, or the inventor, to selflessly get comfortable with becoming uncomfortable; first and foremost?
It is my belief that by illustrating a redefined way of altering the interpretation of language so as to infuse a more intentionally-empowered application of meaning, thus generating a new resource or methodology for yourself, is in fact, to my way of thinking, the antithesis to narrow-mindedness.
