“Good Idea: Giving your dog a bath. Bad Idea: Having your dog dry-cleaned.” ~ Animaniacs
Obvious, isn’t it? Behold the power of over-thinking something.
Poor execution will take your idea into outright stupidity, if you let yourself move to quickly. Don’t let yourself move too quickly. How you execute the idea is just as important as the idea itself. Take time to plan. Be patient. Do it right. Don’t get so excited about the idea that you lose the impact of it by rushing.
I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase, “God is in the details.” I believe that. The best way to do something usually takes time to discover, but it’s still the best way. Give your idea time to fully bake. A half-baked idea will make *you* look half-baked. Every time. Get all the puzzle pieces in the right place and all your resources lined-up, on-board and engaged.
I considered going into greater detail on this subject, but the quote contains all the visuals you need. A dry-cleaned dog, while indeed clean, is not the right solution. Ever.
Pay attention to the plan. Don’t rush it.
