“Execution eats strategy for breakfast” – Sidney Eve

We have an imagination laboratory with white boards all around and projectors and sound systems and TVs and cool furniture.  As we were building it, a colleague commented, “I’ll never get you out of here.”  Imagination and vision are warm and safe sanctuaries.  It is the realm of possibilities and unlimited potential.

I go there as often as I can.

Alas, sooner or later, somebody has to “do” something.  Potential is wasted if not channeled into something tangible.  True, the value of the plan is in the planning but it is wasted unless the plan hits the road.

Execution is the hardest part but it’s the only thing that translates into value.
