Good strategy is just as important as good execution

Tuesday, October 6th, 2015

I want to clear something up. I take issue with this latest post stating Execution Eats Strategy for Lunch.

Good strategy is just as important as good execution. To achieve success, one can’t exist without the other.


Using visualization to drive creativity & strategy

Monday, January 17th, 2011

I think Mark Suster might be my soulmate. His post on TechCrunch this morning “How I Use Visualization To Drive Creativity” is one of the BEST posts I have ever read. Yes, ever. It’s good to know (and feel validated) that I’m not crazy for following almost the *exact* same processes as Mark does when it comes to the creative process for communicating information.

As someone who loathes lined notebooks and prefers not to take notes on my iPad in meetings, I am sometimes mocked for being “old skool”. Take it or leave it people, I like my fine tip ballpoint pens, sharpies and sketch books—that will never go away (well, except for when I use my Livecribe Echo pen which has helped matters for time/sharing efficiency purposes only— who doesn’t like a pen that translates your notes/sketches to a PDF or converts it into a word.doc in 3 seconds?)

People look at my notebook and often seem confused (or worse think I am confused) because I take notes in clusters and then almost always connect them with different color pens/highlighters as I start to create a structure for whatever it is that I am trying to relate or communicate. I do the same prior to building PPT/Keynote decks. It’s formally called mind mapping, but I call it creategic [cre-tegic]; a combo of creativity & strategy.
