Dream or Vision ??

In a routine coaching class,I was asked a routine question - What is the difference between a dream and a vision ? A couple of minutes of thought into this question,and I realised this idea struck some sort of chord with me.What followed was a small discussion over it,again a routine one,but on the personal front,this differentiation between dream and vision became an object of importance.

What exactly is the answer to the above mentioned question.Like any abstract theme,the beauty lies in the very fact that it has no exact answer,it has interpretations,and opinions.Well my opinion,about the distinguishing feauture between the two,is that,Dream is anything we see for the future,Vision,apart from being a dream,has certain additional properties.Vision is also something we envisage,but it also consists of a belief that we will make that happen,or play our due role in it.Vision includes the belief that things will work out,because we will make them work.

Why did this seemingly apparent idea suddenly aquire so much of importance in my eyes.I guess all of us have dreams,even I had many.Now I have realised that average people have dreams,and the men who made it big,had visions.Its time I minimised dreaming(not end) things, and started envisioning things.

Whats your take...Dream or Vision??

hmmm... a valid question!

MY take:

Dream: Everything we think about our future life without much analytical and philosophical thought into it is DREAM

Vision: When we decide that we have to achieve something or we want our lives to reach that level and we start working rather planning in that way and with perseverance follow it till the end, i.e. , VISION

"Every vision is a dream but vice-versa is not true!"

I think your post also is all about this only :)

get well soon :)

I can see that our interpretations are tuned to a great degree...

Get well soon sounds a little 'misplaced' here...I would like to mention(for others) that I am unwell,and it wasnt my post that made Ashish comment this :)

you must be preparing for MBA..right?

nyway the choice is some people make short/long term have the authority to choose..

Dreams - are so many, cant write down each one of them :)

Vision - is what I perceive, observe and decide..

एक दृश्य जिसके पीछे हम जाते हैं
एक दृश्य जिसमे सोते रह जाते हैं
एक जहाँ श्रम मूल्यवान शुभ वर्धक है
किन्तु स्वप्न का श्रम सुख सभी निरर्थक है
एक प्रकाशित करता है पुरुषार्थ हमारा
एक जागरण होते ही खो जाता सारा

सहमत हों तो मुझ तक अपनी टिप्पणी प्रेषित करें
सवाल अच्छा उठाया है
जरा खोपडी की मालिश हो गयी
