Naked Visionary describes what drives those motivated forerunners who bring their visions to life. It puts a spotlight on creative change and the visionary process itself. But it also encourages the creative capabilities lying fallow within us all—-how each of us can blow on our own sparks of brilliance for the answers we desire.
There is a rich vein of information about the visionary journey, and the non-conforming individuals embarked on it, that has never been mined very deeply. Distinct stages and trials test anyone who walks that path. Those challenges arise without regard for the individual’s personal qualities or preparation.
It explains the influences, rewards, and obstacles that characterize the visionary path and visionary thinking. It also describes the inner journey that is a crucial as solving the practical challenges.
All of us have the “visionary gene” hardwired into us, poised to support one’s individual sense of purpose. Not only is vision widespread, it is a skill that can be cultivated by anyone in order to open a broader range of possibilities.
The World Needs Visionary Answers
Wherever we look—-politics, economics, social institutions, values or within our close relationships—people are alarmed. What we’ve trusted is collapsing, and in most cases capable leadership is wanting. Given the chaos and dysfunction rampant in public and private life, the world badly needs farsighted and revolutionary answers. We need visionaries, with their determination to defy the odds and obstacles. We need their uncompromising commitment and resolve. And we need some of that unstoppable foolhardiness.
Visionaries function in the field of potential—-what could be. They are change agents who must master their inner demons and doubts, while struggling to communicate a compelling message to an unreceptive world.
It is written on three parallel levels:
• The challenges and stages of the visionary path, and those who pursue it (a global view)
• How each person can recognize their own sparks of brilliance, and trust those insights enough to act on them (the personal view)
• How to encourage more visionary thinking so we upgrade the kinds of answers being applied to the world’s difficulties (the social view)
The book is comprehensive and takes a 360º view. Section I describes the elements of the visionary journey: the person, the vision, the challenges, and the benefits that follow. Section II explains the practical concerns of bringing a vision to life. Section III explores specific arenas where visionaries ply their trade: business leadership, science (the mind), and the arts and spiritual matters (the heart).
