Make Innovative Ideas Happen

“Nearly every major breakthrough innovation has been preceded by a string of failed or misguided executions.” — Frans Johansson.

It’s our implementation, not our idea that matters.

  • It’s how we apply those ideas.
  • How creative we are.
  • How useful we are.
  • How brave we are.
  • How technically skilled we are.
  • How we anticipate what our users will love.
  • How we learn from the ideas and work of others.

It’s not about our ideas, it’s about what the ideas can do for our users.


The most brilliant idea, with no execution, is worth $20.
The most brilliant idea takes great execution to be worth $20,000,000.

That’s why I don’t want to hear people’s ideas.
I’m not interested until I see their execution.

by Derek

[…] without the right idea, any amount of execution is worthless
