I’ll take fast with a good plan over painfully slow with a perfect plan

If you’re pretty much headed in the right direction, moving quickly, that’s a good thing that produces great results. But if you’re moving slowly, who cares if you’re dead-on, 100% accurate with your direction? You’ll never gain momentum. You’ll never get to the destination.

  1. I agree with you in 90% of the cases/industries/business models. Some exceptions, I want my doctor to be 100% on with his plan and my lawyer to be 100% on with her plan – even if they have to move slower to get it right. In most industries, action and inertia are key ingredients to success. But pausing for a breath to look around and take stock often reveals opportunities for improvements (e.g. moving along with a field sales force for years and then breathing for a moment and realizing you can supplant some Headcount with online videos / product demos, etc.). Another nice post Brandon.
