2020 was dubbed “the year for seeing clearly” due to the number being analogous to the description for “perfect” 20/20 vision. It’s interesting that we often use this term to describe excellent vision, yet don’t necessarily know what it means. As it turns out, 20/20 vision does not mean “perfect” vision; but according to the American Optometric Society, it simply means “seeing clearly at 20 feet what should normally be seen at that distance.” 20/20 vision means “normal” vision of an object at a distance of 20 feet. There are other important aspects to vision skills – peripheral awareness, side to side vision, eye coordination, depth perception, focusing ability and color perception – that contribute to overall vision ability.
So, how are you “seeing” your financial world today; what investment and economic outlook do you “see?”
