I’m finding out that — at least sometimes — you can “feel it” when an inflection point is coming.
It’s as if things are starting to fall into place.
Around the time I wrote this blog post, I had already started to formulate a new strategy. Immediately things felt better, although the wheels are only slowly getting into motion.
Without clearly identifying what it was at the time, I could nonetheless sense that it would, from that point on, be easier to execute on my objective — (although I’ve got a shitload of work ahead of me).
Coincidentally, or in a rather uncannily timely manner I’d say, Fred Wilson wrote a seminal blog post two days ago, titled “Get the Strategy Right and the Execution is Easy.
It could not have been more à-propos!
And so when I read the post, something clicked for me regarding the importance of strategy; and that's an understatement.
I find it puts the old adage, “Work smarter, not harder” into proper context.
