‘There is no harm building dream castles in the air. Now just put foundations under them’ said a philosopher. Not only is there no harm in dreaming, it is a critical element in creating the reality you want. In the era of silent movies, Harry M.Warner, Warner Brothers said ”Who the hell wants to hear actors talk?”
Dream the impossible dream and make sure your whole team dreams the same clear dream. Gandhiji said “Poorna Swaraj!” or Total Freedom! The minds of 350 million Indians were focused on that magic word – Freedom! He burnt all the bridges with the implementation mantra ‘Do or Die’.
If you want your company to pursue stretch goals you need to do this two step maneuver:
1. Create a unified dream
2. Act to finish.
Ideas are easier. Implementation is the killer!
