Stop Planning and Start Executing

Throughout our journey together you have been planning and documenting your process and progress.  By now you should have a pretty good roadmap.  You should have a clear path from where you were to where you are now, with a clear view of where you are going.  Planning and the roadmap are without a doubt critical in accomplishing any goal we set for ourselves.  The great Brian Tracy says that “A genius without a good roadmap will get lost in any country and an average person with a good roadmap will go straight and true to his destination.”   

Until you decide to execute against some of the opportunities you’ve been following and practicing on, all the planning and documenting you have done over the past months can’t be validated.  I challenge you to execute what you have – test yourself – test your roadmap – test the information you have.  Calibrate the information you have.  

Several years ago, I was a Field Artillery Officer in the U.S. Army.  We used to calibrate our guns.  It was a necessary evil to learn how the guns were firing.  We then made the necessary adjustments based on the data (feedback) we received.  That’s what I’m suggesting you do.  Calibrate your learning, calibrate your knowledge base – and then adjust as necessary. 

Stop planning and start executing.  I believe you are much farther along than you might think.  I look forward to hearing about your successes!

See you on the high ground!
