What to change

For tonight’s heavy weight bout for the Boxing Entrepreneurship Championship of the world we have a much anticipated battle with:

“Excellent idea with Average execution”

vs

“Average idea with Excellent execution”

After 10 rounds of fighting the undisputed defending champion of the world title belt was awarded to Average idea with excellent execution who has managed to defends the title for time in perpetuity. In fact Average idea with excellent execution has an unbeaten record versus all other challenges in too many matches to remember.

Startups – your idea isn’t nearly as important as you think it is.
