Each group had four kids. Each puzzle was exactly the same.
The first group received the puzzle with the correct picture on the box cover.
The second group received the exact same puzzle, but Blair removed the box cover with the picture. The team had no idea what the completed puzzle should look like.
The third group was given the same exact puzzle, but the picture on the box cover was a completely different picture.
How important is a clear vision to achievement?
Group one finished in three minutes. Group two struggled and completed only 50 percent of the puzzle in three minutes. Group three—totally frustrated—did not finish and experienced the most stress.
Blair asked group one how they completed the puzzle so quickly. As a chorus they said, “We had a picture. We kind of put it together.”
So, which group are you most like? The kids who had no vision? Are you feeling your way tentatively?
Take a snapshot of your vision. Complete your puzzle (goal). Celebrate your success!
