Todd Sattersten, who works for business book vendor 800-CEO-READ recently published this short entry at FastCompany.com 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.
