Ideas are a commodity

Ideas are a commodity. Execution of them is not.

“Ideas are a commodity. Execution of them is not.”

Who said it:  Michael Dell

Michael is the founder and CEO of Dell Inc.

Why I like it:

Every person I have ever met has had an idea at some stage in their life.

Whether it is simple or complex, we are all capable of the most amazing inventions, ideas, and innovations.

What most of us lack is the ability to give something a shot, knowing that there is a good chance of failure. 

And what Michael is saying is that most people don't have the ability to execute. 

Dell executes their business with precision, and I always take note of businesses like these as role models.
