The burning question every executive must answer

What delivers superior results?

The answer:

  1. a relevant strategy, (that is)
  2. well communicated, (with)
  3. smart execution 
  4. (and maybe a bit of luck). 

Although we can't help you with the last one, we can help you with the first three, (which means you'll be less reliant on the 4th). 

The first step is to stop self-harm: stop looking for simplistic answers from elsewhere and start learning about yourself and your environment better instead.
