Opinion #7 - Execution is everything!
Einstein once said that "everybody is a genius, but if you judge a fish by it's ability to climb a tree, it will live it's whole life believing that it is stupid" and I think the world is starting to try to focuses on the ability of the "fish" to swim, notwithstanding what "swim" means to each individual.
The society's focus on allowing everyone to devote their lives to their passions, their motivations and they goals is key for the fast evolution we are experiencing right now in plenty of fields.
YouTube, SnapChat, Instagram and many others allowed creators to publish their content and monetize on it if the users like it. Coursera is making available to anyone thousands of free courses for their personal development. Kickstarter and Indiegogo allow inventors to offer their products to the market to fund the production. WordPress and many many others allow people like me who just want to write what's going through their mind to have a website for people to read it.
All these sites are amazing and they all have one thing in common: if you want to succeed, you have to EXECUTE. Execution is EVERYTHING! Everyone has ideas, and those ideas can be better or worse, but only those who execute reach success.
If you have read anything about start-up investing, Venture Capitalist always answer the same thing: we are investing on the team, not that much on the idea. What they are really saying is that they are investing in people that they believe can EXECUTE and work their ass off for succeeding. They only invest in people that they really really want it.
How much do you want it?
