1. a plan for the future, an idea of how things should be
a clear vision for the future
Someone who has a 'clear vision' has a distinct view or plan of their goals and how things will look in the future. A 'clear vision' implies that there is an absence of distractions or obstructions, and someone with a clear vision intends to overcome anything to reach their goals. You might come across a company with a 'clear vision' of their brand, or a manager or CEO with a 'clear vision' for where they might like their company to be in a few years' time. This is usually used in professional contexts but can also be used to talk about personal goals.
