Relentless execution

From Dave Brock’s Blog

Top performers are obsessive in their learning because the are very goal directed.  Their learning is purposeful and intended to help them achieve their goals.  Their goal is not just to be the most knowledgeable person in the room/conversation, but to achieve something.  Whether it’s to incite a customer to change, gain support for an initiative within their own organization, build or grow a business, they leverage knowledge in execution.

Episode VII: The Execution Step

When this happens, there are many benefits that we will experience like learning from your mistakes, making the necessary adjustments, moving closer to our goal, plus many others.  Despite these benefits,  reasons like the fear of failure, the belief that now is not the right time, etc…, tend to paralyze many of us from acting.

While it is true that taking premature action might be just as bad as not taking any action at all, we can’t delay executing the “Definite Plan” for reaching our “Definite Chief Aim” out of hope for a perfect plan, out of hope the perfect timing or out of hope for the perfect situation.
