What's the Essence of Vision

In my opinion the following quote by Arthur Schopenhauer captures the essence of (strategic) vision in a beautiful way:
In German:
"Daher ist die Aufgabe nicht sowohl zu sehen was noch keiner gesehen hat, als bei Dem was Jeder sieht, zu denken was noch Keiner gedacht hat."

English translation:
"Therefore the problem is not so much to see what nobody has yet seen, as to think what nobody has yet thought concerning that which everybody sees."

Arthur Schopenhauer (1851), in "Parerga und Paralipomena: Kleine Philosophische Schriften", Volume 2, Section: 76, page 93.

The essence of Vision is Creativity.
