Execution lies in the details

Once the vision for your startup is firmly in place, it helps to tighten up focus. This quote from philosopher William James about “master[ing] the thousand and one practical matters that will ultimately make your dreams come true” evokes the right picture: “I am done with great things and big plans, great institutions and big success. I am for those tiny, invisible loving human forces that work from individual to individual, creeping through the crannies of the world like so many rootlets, or like the capillaries.”

 

[1] as summarized by Rob Breszny who would qualify as a philosopher in my book.
