Execute or Pass The Baton


“Execute on your ideas or give them away.”

- Jared Yellin



Let’s make a big and bold deal right now…


Do I have your attention?


Okay, here’s the deal…


Please repeat after me…


I COMMIT TO NOT (and I repeat NOT) GOING TO THE GRAVEYARD WITH ANY OF MY MOST PASSIONATE, EXCITING, AND INNOVATIVE IDEAS!


Okay, now your turn…


It irks me to no end when I think about the amount of greatness, breakthroughs, solutions, WINS, etc. that reside in the graveyard because people did NOT execute and did NOT give their ideas away.


I get asked often to sign an NDA and I almost always deny…


And there are three reasons…


1 - Ideas are worthless

2 - Ideas are worthless

3 - Ideas are worthless


And btw…


Did I say ideas are worthless?


I mean it though…


An idea without execution is wasted potential so why hold onto your ideas for dear life when maybe someone is meant to bring your ideas to life as you watch…


But I get it…


What if your idea is the next Uber, Facebook, Slack, Instagram, etc.?

What if someone else were to hear your idea and build it on their own?

What if that idea was your shot to have it all?


Well - if the idea has the potential to lead to any of the above outcomes - then why hold onto it?!?!


Please think logically about this…


WHY HOLD ONTO AN IDEA versus EXECUTING versus GIVING IT AWAY?


All ideas are meant to experience life and NOT reside in the body, mind, and eventually spirit of a human being...


All ideas are meant to see the light of day to determine viability, impact, and effectiveness.


All ideas are meant to be utilized, benefited from, and solve problems…


But if you are the beholder of greatness and you do nothing with it - SHAME ON YOU!


So, what should you do…


A - Commit to a consistent action plan

B - Commit to sharing the idea with someone who has a consistent action plan

C - Check out www.cilalabs.com if you want a partner with a track record in technology AND has a consistent action plan…


The consistency with these options is the CONSISTENT ACTION PLAN and if you are able to achieve this outcome on your own - YES!!!!


AND


If you can’t achieve this outcome on your own - PASS THE BATON!


Do we have a deal?!


And, please repeat after me…


I COMMIT TO NOT (and I repeat NOT) GOING TO THE GRAVEYARD WITH ANY OF MY MOST PASSIONATE, EXCITING, AND INNOVATIVE IDEAS!
