FAILURE TO EXECUTE!
Execute is a big word when carrying out a maneuver, or a plan has been accomplished.
The successful execution of a plan can fill a lot of voids, but the word execute is also attached to some deadly consequences oftentimes leading to punishment for a crime so serious it’s commonly referred to as the Death Sentence.
Well, am not talking about that execution, am talking about the other ones, the ones concerning putting into place a real plan that is ready to execute (start); an order, or course of action.
Take note; there are plans out there that should never make it outside of some people’s head or their imaginative off the rail outlook on things that are not normal, (mental frailty, devilish practices, etc…) some things need to stay in check.
Ideals are easy to come by and most of us have an abundance of them; the thing is, execution is the only way to complete any plan, including the ones we didn’t plan; I was sitting in a school auditorium when a lady fell dead out of her seat, now I am sure she had not planned that since it was her granddaughter’s graduation.
We just never know, even when planning our death, put a plan in place just in case you don’t get to have the last say. Now, that’s something to think about, this is too, It’s the execution of any plan that matters, never the idea.
An old Japanese Proverb tells us Vision without execution is a daydream, and execution without vision is a nightmare; take singers for instance, they know a really Great talent has the ability to execute the music, just like team members understand “Great execution, that’s what you have to do when you’re playing Great teams”.
Leaders know when on a job site it obligates them to execute the company’s business by any means necessary; do it themselves, hire more help, etc…or risk losing the job; Here lies the problem; ideas are plentiful, but the actual execution of these ideas are far and in-between.
I am guilty several times over; I have had ideas that I discussed with others, and sought after those who could help with my plan; help with something I couldn’t do, draw the blueprint, build a prototype, but…
I lost my chance to hit the jackpot all because of Failure to Execute.
It’s simple, I didn’t put in the work, and I paid a price. Twenty-some years later I would see an idea I had on AS SEEN ON TV… All because I did not execute my plan. I thought I needed a partner when the idea was enough.
I think most of us have lost out on something worthwhile that is directly related to slothful behavior (lazy). My normal reaction when laziness was the main cause of my downfalls was to try to clean it up by saying it wasn’t my turn, but not this time, it was all me.
The sad thing is my project didn’t require electronics, electrical power, etc.; it’s a game that would have fit in then just like it does now.
We need to understand failure is not a death sentence, failure is not about insecurities (afraid to, no knowledge of, etc.), it’s about The Law of the Land, and that is for us to fall down in order to learn how to get up; and…
Stop saying it’s complicated when you fail to execute. Failures are all about I bet I don’t do that again; It’s a learning process to teach us how to plan the execution of our plan, then executes the plan.
Effective execution of a plan is what counts not mere planning on paper; it is not what we put on our plate or even what we eat that provides nourishment and growth, it’s what we digest.
Careful now, don’t become over-confident and neglect to fact check every aspect of your work (leadership); However beautiful the strategy, you should occasionally look at the results. Sir Winston Churchill.
And it’s always a good idea to learn the language of your task or goals; the particulars about the item, how does it work, what’s it made of, etc.?
And just so you know, Bad communication is a disconnect between strategy and execution.
It’s Something To Think About!
