Earlier this year, regarding moving forward w/ WordPress (.org)- I wrote the following in a comment:
“…it’s a complete mess! So much so that, those who maintains it not even dare to dive deep to fix it!! Spending years, I felt that, the problem lies as if- who will take responsibility for it? Skilled in ‘writing codes’ can’t solve it alone- it requires both visionaries, and tons of efforts from different skill range- it’s easier to keep escaping from it by fixing a things or two- and (kinda) wait for People to complain- so they can sort out these complaints to focus, and make ‘priorities’, and go forward somehow….”
Some notes from the post:
Table 4: Operators’ vs Visionaries’ Managerial Activities
|Knowledge of the sector, focused on production and sales||General knowledge of the sector as a whole, from a marketing standpoint|
|Development of a view||Formulation of a vision|
|Career decision, choice of professional activities||Business decision, personal commitment|
|Production and/or sales and/or R&D||Implementation of a vision by selecting relations|
|Working with others||Design and implementation of an organizational activity system|
|Organization||Sharing of the vision|
|Follow-up||Observation and monitoring|
|Corrections||Analysis and imagination|
Once I wrote a haiku called Wicked, I coined “Visionary” as “Wicked Dreamer” and “Operators” as “Warriors”. :)
I had the realization from life that, you need to be a “warrior” to survive, and you’ve to be a “wicked dreamer” to progress.
Interestingly, most of the time, it’s hard to realize or explain a dream (vision) just because people surrounded by may not understand the importance of it. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
The best part of a “Visionary” is that, when they hit the wall, they push through it. There is no exception to realize a dream that is perceived as wicked by others.
