Execution (Part II)

I ended yesterday's post with "Just Do It".... but that is not enough. You have to know what to do and have the right tools to get the job done right.

If your goals are not realistic or clearly defined, then no matter how much "doing" you do, you will still not achieve.

If I was to tell you to get from Austin, Texas to Los Angeles, California....that could be a realistic goal. With a time frame of three or four hours, you could get there by plane. But if I told you to drive by car and arrive in three hours, that is not possible. If I give you no budget, you wont be able to get there by any means (maybe if you hitch hike). So just having a goal is not enough, even if you take steps to get there.

In order to really execute on achieving your goals you need to know more than just where you are going. You need to have a detailed plan and know how much time you have to reach certain milestones.

What is your goal?

What steps are necessary to achieve that goal?

How much time and money can you invest toward getting what you want?

Who else can help you get what you want? (you can't do it alone).

Now....JUST DO IT.

Have A Great Day.
