Business success is like a puzzle.
You have a bunch of pieces that have to go together. The trick is the order.
If you don’t have a strategy for putting a puzzle together you might still get it finished, but it’s going to take you a lot longer.
People often talk about execution being the key to a successful business. That’s true. Execution is critical. But don’t confuse execution with simply “doing.”
Doing stuff isn’t a strategy.
Working isn’t even a strategy — unless you’ve taken the time, energy and brain power to figure out the right order of steps you need to succeed.
Knowing all the steps is great, knowing what order to put them in is even better.
