Execution Matters

~ 1.5 Minute Read.

I was at a start­up event yes­ter­day, which was prob­a­bly my first—at Vhite Rab­bit I al­ways want­ed to con­cen­trate on the con­tent part more than the for­mal­i­ties of be­ing a com­pa­ny. Iso­lat­ed from the rest of the start­up scene in my area in that way it was very in­ter­est­ing talk­ing to peo­ple that were sim­i­lar­ly-mind­ed!

This is one of the things Gary Vayn­er­chuck pos­tu­lates 1, but I want to em­pha­size this here, since I heared about his at this event aswell: with trend of “en­trepreneur­ship” be­ing “hip”, peo­ple don’t re­al­ize how much work you need to put in to get your ideas rolling!

The best idea is worth­less if you can­not im­ple­ment it.

A bad idea can work though, if you com­pen­sate with great ex­e­cu­tion, though.

I’ve been work­ing to­geth­er with my team at Vhite Rab­bit for soon to be five years now and we did not have had fi­nan­cial suc­cess yet. We nev­er had “the idea”, but just want­ed to work on Vir­tu­al Re­al­i­ty soft­ware—games for the most part up till now. This built up our team quite well, es­tab­lished pipe­lines and struc­tured us so that we gained speed in ex­e­cu­tion. Now that we may have an in­ter­est­ing idea that we will pur­sue, this will be a great ad­van­tage.

What I want to leave you with is: don’t wait for an idea to start ex­e­cut­ing on. Start­ing to ex­e­cute on a sub­par idea can build up your skills that you will need once that big­ger idea comes along.

En­trepreneur­ship is Hard Work
