A couple of weeks ago I was Mountain Biking and had to pass through a large tunnel on my route. It was an abandoned dirt road and about half way into the tunnel I realized that I could not see a thing in front of me. I slowed down since I couldn't tell whether there were pot holes or other obstacles to avoid. I kept going because I could see the light at the end of the tunnel and I realized that within a couple of minutes I would come out the other side.
In business, it is easy to come to a point where confusion, frustration, burnout, etc. become overwhelming and it is tempting to throw in the towel and give up. Don't do it! It's ok to slow down for a minute to regain your bearings but keep on going. Establish a clear compelling vision and it will become your light at the end of the tunnel.
