This week I have been thinking about execution. Everyone has ideas but few people get around to executing their ideas. Having a great idea is not enough, what you do with that idea is what matters. Have you ever had an idea that you didn’t move on fast enough and suddenly you saw someone else that knew absolutely nothing about you start out that thing? This is because ideas are in the air, it is the person who makes moves that really own that idea.
Execution is one of the big things that I struggle with, I am great with coming up with ideas but terrible with actually getting around to doing. One of the things I am learning is, ‘do it already’. The only way to execute is to execute.
Make that call. Send that email. Compose that text. Make the enquiry. Little little actions make up to the compound effect. Do you have a big idea? Make small moves to start with. Are you scared? Then ‘Do it Afraid’.
If you can, surround yourself with one or two persons that can encourage and constantly remind you about what you said you desired to do as well assist with the execution part.
It is really helpful to write down a list of things that you would love to get done this week and also write down an action plan on how you would get them done. It advisable that you write this in a book where it is easy to find and then refer to it every morning before you set out to start your day.
Have a great day execution-full week!
