Dead Man Walking

When John Robinson was coach of the Tampa Bay Bucs when they were truly terrible, he was asked in a post-game conference what he thought of his team's execution. His response was simply, "I'm in favor of it."

Coach Robinson's commentary on his team's poor execution could certainly be reflective of our personal lives as well. I don't believe that we have a shortage of good ideas, but instead we lack the gumption to take the necessary steps to make it happen. I have seen multiple levels of leaders come up with good ideas, but lack the discipline and strategic mindset to see that idea come to life. I'm not casting stones here either--I have been guilty of it in my personal and professional life as well. Lack of execution shows that we can talk the talk, but don't necessarily walk the walk.

To be effective leaders in industry & our homes, to see positive personal development, and for overall holistic health, we must be able to put things into action. Applying a strategy of action to good ideas will produce maturity and positive change in us. The lack of execution in life change won't get us where we want to go and will kill life momentum and any chance of bettering our circumstances.
