Great article in Harvard Business Review about Francis Ford Coppola, who has produced 72 movies and directed 33, including The Godfather and Apocalypse Now!

While Coppola uses this to get out of an impasse or break a roadblock, I would encourage everyone in our For Impact World to relate this to the Vision word, the Message and the Story. If you know your theme (in a word or two or three!), it will help you run your organization, hire great talent, deliver amazing solutions and impact, and much more!
