Line of sight is predictable. We can scope more accurately. Our planning is better and risks are reduced. As soon as we lose line of sight, uncertainty increases.

Line of sight introduces micro changes that are predictable and therefore similar to the present. When faced with realities that are not sufficiently addressed within a slightly modified future version of the present, we must venture beyond.

The horizon represents a threshold of our certainty. Beyond it, we face innumerable challenges, unknown opportunities. Beyond it lies the future that will almost certainly be different from the present.

It’s scary. It could be worse than the less than desirable slightly modified but certain future. It could also be better.

This is what a compass is for.
