UIEtips: Execution is Everything

Jared Spool

September 24th, 2014

There are thousands of good ideas thrown about daily, but to execute just one good idea takes considerable effort. It requires that a team stays focused and in tune with the goal. It requires a system for execution – OKRs. That’s what Christina Wodtke brings in this week’s article.

After we first heard Christina talk about OKRs for goal setting, we started to take action using her ideas. Now you too can get in on a great way to outline your goal setting. Our next UIE Virtual Seminar features Christina on Mapping Your Success with Objectives and Key Results, Tuesday October 7.

Here’s an excerpt from the article:

I almost never hear a new idea. In fact, it’s rare I hear an idea I haven’t thought of myself, unless it’s in an industry I’m unfamiliar with. It’s not because I’m a genius (I’m not). It’s that ideas are easier to come up with than you think. What’s hard — really hard— is moving from an idea to a reality. It’s hard to find the right form of an idea, a form that will let consumers see its value, understand how to interact with it, and feel excited enough to pay for it.

    So true! I first came up with the idea for my business in late 2011, and it’s only now finally coming to reality, because the execution has been incredibly difficult.

    Execution is everything, but the beauty of this is that when you do execute, it’s the best feeling in the world. 🙂
