MMM 003: Belling The Cat – Execution Is More Important Than Ideas

Belling the cat

Today I want to share an old fable story called “Belling the Cat”

The Story: A family of mice is living in fear of a cat that hunts them all day
and night. Tired of fearing for their lives every second, they decide to try
and think up a plan to help their situation. After some time, one of the
younger mice comes up with a brilliant idea. The mouse suggests that they tie
a bell around the cat’s neck, so they can hear it approach and always be able
to hide in time. All the mice agree, except one: the oldest, wisest mouse.
The old mouse agrees that it’s a good plan in theory, but asks
“who will be the one to bell the cat?”
Here is the lesson to be learned from this story.

Ideas are essential to solving problems, but even more essential is knowing
how to execute the idea.

For example, you know that when you purchase an online course or product to make
money online you need to read the ebook or watch the videos, but with out taking
action on what you learned, it is irrelevant!

When you come up with ideas ideas for your business or how you are going to
market it, always have a plan of action to implement. If you don’t know exactly
what you should do to execute your idea, it’s okay to ask for advice, but never
boast about your idea until it’s truly ready and you are going to take massive
consistent imperfect action!

Remember…Execution is more important than ideas!
Until next time I wish you a Brilliant Life!!!
