The Time for Action Is Now: Execution is the Key

Todd Sattersten, who works for business book vendor 800-CEO-READ recently published this short entry at on the importance of Action (i.e., Execution):

"The ever common debate is "What is more important -- the idea or the execution?" I have recently come on the side of action.

I have never found the idea part difficult. If you are a student of business, you can find inspiration all around you. Read the business media. Go to conferences. Good ideas are everywhere."
(Read the rest here.)

BOTTOMLINE: Ideas are everywhere. The key is to execute on the right ideas, continually, consistently and systematically. Execution is the fundamental design principle behind Six Disciplines.
