WHEN HAVING VISION IS NOT ENOUGH
“Ideas are easy. Execution is everything.”
– John Doerr, Investor and Venture Capitalist
The process of executing on your vision is knowing where you are, where you want to go and how to get there.
The ‘how’ is the strategy behind your approach. It’s similar to planning a trip.
SIGHT is seeing what you want
VISION is a map of where to go, to get what u saw
ENVISIONING is the path and “the how” to get there
EXECUTION is actually making the trip
If you know the ‘how’, opinions of others can’t derail your vision.
Your vision: “I want to build a 5-story house”
Others (Opposition): “So why are you digging a hole?”
The How: “I must set the foundation FIRST!”
- You must develop systems that help you achieve your goal (read below)
- In order to lead you have to set the direction for others to execute.
- You want others who can execute better than you can (team building is about collaboration not competition) but the leader dictates the direction and pace!
- The loudest voice isn’t always the leader. The leader is the one who can clearly communicate and gather support for a vision.
- What goals do I want to accomplish? How do you accomplish your goals?
- Do I have a plan and a system?
- How have I accomplished goals in this past?
- How successful have those strategies been? (Rate yourself on a scale from 1-10)
