Vision and Execution
Here is a great thread from Sam Altman that I found very relatable.
Some good advice for anyone trying to start something from scratch. Here are excerpts:
” It’s common to have vision; it’s rare to have plans.
Even fewer people are willing/able to actually execute on plans.
People who have a bold vision, specific plans, and execution ability can make magic happen.
For whatever reason, it doesn’t work as well when you have to split those three traits among multiple people. “
- Vision—3 years
- Plan—6 months
But you have to have measures (schedule, completion, success, revenue) that drive the cadence and the timing of “revisiting” is part of planning—when will you revisit matters. “
To close this, a great quote:
“Having a plan is worthless but planning is indispensable – D. Eisenhower”
