Great Ideas Are Nothing Without Execution

Lire en Français

It is the EXECUTION of ideas that leads to results in your life.

“The graveyard is the richest place on earth, because it is here that you will find all the hopes and dreams that were never fulfilled, the books that were never written, the songs that were never sung, the inventions that were never shared, the cures that were never discovered, all because someone was too afraid to take that first step, keep with the problem, or determined to carry our their dream.”

Les Brown

I can list off 10 “great” ideas off the top of my head. I’m sure you can too. But until we do something about it, it doesn’t mean anything. It’s our willingness to carry out those ideas. You only need to carry out one of those ideas.

When someone asks “is it a good idea?,” most of the time your answer (although genuine) maybe false. But the right answer should be “go ask the market”. Only him can give you the right answer.

What the person should do it TEST and learn from their idea to see if “the market” or the world finds their idea to be useful.

Expose your ideas to the market

The market is your ultimate validation test for ideas. Expose your ideas to the masses and get feedback regularly to shape your offering to be more helpful for those you serve.

The next time you get an idea, start defining what it takes to turn that idea into a beautiful reality. This is the difference maker between the talkers and the doers.

We are all blessed with a limitless flow of “great” ideas but can you put together a team and the resources to make yours a reality?

You can. Just understand the balance. And if you spend all day in idea land, surround yourself with people who love to take action.

What is the right time to launch ?

Your ability to execute on that idea is worthless if you can’t carry out on the vision you’ve set in place.

Don’t be a man of ideas. Be a man of action. If you’re wondering when the best time to get started is. . .

The answer is never.

Put your ideas into the market and let the market show you proof of your great thoughts.

Have a nice day and keep DOING the things you need to do to be successful. Don’t neglect times for deep thinking but don’t get lost in your mind.
