How can you deal with the problem of haste when pursuing your vision? There are different steps that a hasty person can follow in order to cut to the barest minimum the challenges posed by haste. It may suffice me to say that everybody, one way or the other, has an element of haste buried inside him; no one was born with absolute patience. Therefore, to ensure a complete metamorphosis of the mental picture of that vision you’re pregnant with, you should:

1. Understand the process or design of the vision and follow it to the letter: If your vision is to develop a fruit juice, you must first and foremost understand the basic procedure of making it. If you think that blending different fruits alone will give you a good fruit juice, you will put yourself into unnecessary trouble. So, take the time to research and study the various processes you must undergo in order to come up with something valuable. If you’re too much in a hurry to be known, you’ll end up embarrassing yourself and your dream. Take time to know the basics; knowing the basics will help you innovate. From the basics, take another time to reinvent the basics. Reinvention is innovation. It is innovation that will make your product or service different from the rest. The Chinese industrial revolution went through a process before becoming a great asset. If you want yours to be an asset, dutifully follow step by step, the process or design.

2. Avoid stupid secrecy: In 2012, I had a discussion with a woman I encouraged to start blogging; although she turned it down. She never wanted anyone to copy her ‘precious’ materials, so, she preferred staying in oblivion. I’m so sorry to say, she might die in oblivion because of her mindset.

There are many people that design certain products, but never let anyone know about it because they’re scared of someone stealing their designs. Due to that, only they take a look at their designs with their limited visions. No matter how much you want to secure your intellectual property, there must be people you can trust that should take a look at what you’ve done. What other people may see, you may not be able to see because you’re not almighty. Don’t be in a hurry to throw an untested product into the market; get people to look at it. If you don’t trust individuals, there are corporate organisations involved in what you do; let one of them take a look at your design. But make sure you sign a confidentiality agreement with them. By doing that, it becomes legally binding. If they default, they can be sued. Don’t be in haste to expose your work; avoid stupid secrecy.

3. Be willing and ready to accept constructive criticisms: Some visionaries shoot themselves in the foot by rebelling against constructive criticisms. When you point out the error in some people’s designs, their countenances change for bad. Suddenly, you can hear them make excuses for their deficiencies. Any visionary with un-teachable spirit is heading for disaster. Haste avoids being taught. Haste never listens to corrections. Haste knows better than everyone until he falls into a bottomless ditch. If you want your dream to stand out, take the time to listen to external inputs.

4. Go back to the drawing board/Implement corrections: Some people easily accept corrections but hardly adopt them. Some people are quick to say, ‘Okay; that’s fine. I see what you’re saying’, but in the end, nothing is done about what they claim to see. Go back to the drawing board and effect every relevant correction you’ve been given. Don’t rush into the marketplace; don’t be hasty. Remember, haste is a dream thief. Haste is a vision stopper. Haste will embarrass you in the marketplace. Take time to carefully look at it, and your vision and dream will have that perfect touch you’ve always admired.
