Execution Does Not Like Complexity


Strategy is Always Complicated. It's Always Complex.

If I ask you, “tell me about your plan for next year, tell me what you’re trying to accomplish.” It’s probably going to take an hour and I’m probably going to want to take a nap afterwards.

Execution doesn’t like complexity. The two best friends of execution are simplicity and transparency and that is exactly what The 4 Disciplines of Execution create.

You Want to Get Started in This? Ask Yourself One Question: 

“In my life, on my team, in my organization, what is that one thing that lives at the intersection of Really Important and This Ain’t Gonna Happen?”

If you know the answer to that question, you are ready to dive into the process.
