Vision + Execution
“Vision without action is a daydream. Action without vision is a nightmare.” -- Japanese Proverb
During my career, I've had the good fortune to run a number of businesses. I've brought a variety of products to market and have managed countless projects. Through all these activities, I've learned that success fundamentally boils down to two main, interlocking, things: vision and execution. You need both to succeed.
Vision is a crisp and clear understanding of what it is you are trying to do. Everyone on the team needs to be clear on what the vision for the business, the product, or the project is, and they need to be in agreement about it. If the vision isn't clear or compelling enough to get everyone on the bus, then you will fail.
Execution is making the vision reality. It needs to be constantly guided by the vision, constantly moving towards it without getting pulled off track by side-shows and distractions.
