Many businesses these days spend hours in meeting rooms trying to figure out what the next big thing will be and how they can harness its power.
But being the first or the most original isn’t as important as doing whatever you do with conviction, and doing it well.
Steve Jobs wasn’t the first to come up with a smartphone or a tablet, but he flawlessly executed their release into the world.
We need to stop overvaluing originality and undervaluing execution.
