As you head out to sea, the shoreline grows smaller and becomes a mirage. Over time, it ceases to exist at all. You are everywhere, but nowhere, with only an idea pushing you forward.
Mapping what's next is a function of the wind, your heading, and the conditions on the water. You may not be able to go directly where you want to go due to forces that are beyond your control. Constant adjustment is required to stay on course.
Sailing on the open water is not unlike leading an organization.
