Develop an Execution Mindset To Succeed At Any Task
Execution exceeds learning
Planning, optimisation, and goal setting — while they’re all important, none of them matters if not followed through with execution.
Understand the difference between planning and over—planning. Over—planning is procrastination in disguise. You are known by the value you deliver today, not the value that you plan on delivering tomorrow.
If you’re facing writer’s block, the best way to come out of it is to write. Just start writing. Executing on the days when you’re in your element is easy. But executing on days when you don’t feel like is what builds the muscle.
Execution accelerates success
When you execute your plan faster, you see results faster, you fail faster, get back up faster. We over plan because it’s easy and it makes us feel like we’re doing something. It keeps us busy. Execution is hard, it implies potential failure, so our mind tries to hold us off it by planning a little bit more.
Make the execution process easy by executing faster. Execution is growth, you succeed or you fail, either way, you produce results which provide learning. Learn faster.
