We have often come across this saying “An idea can change the world.” And we couldn’t agree more. But an idea alone has never shifted the course of the earth, the successful execution of the idea has. Sue Grafton, an American author has very well quoted this theory “Ideas are easy. It’s the execution of ideas that really separates the sheep from the goats."
But can you directly start executing an idea that is just thought off? Performing an ice bucket challenge to launching a rocket, everything needs planning. Basically, you can only successfully execute something if you’ve planned well, and a good plan cannot be made without a great idea. It’s a natural correlation between an idea, planning and execution that is responsible for some of the biggest phenomenon in the world. This special correlation doesn’t exclude startups. A successful entrepreneur is knowingly or unknowingly following this cycle to build his startup.
Now your first startup is always going to be close to your heart, it’s your first step towards a new life that most can only dream of. We have to be honest in saying that none of the stages in building your first or your 100th startup is going to be easy. But we can at least share the outline or a cycle that you can build your startup on. It’s just like the water cycle from our old science textbooks, where instead of water it’s the idea that keeps flowing.
This is a cycle that we’ve learnt from many successful startups out there. What we’ve also realized that the never give up attitude has helped almost every entrepreneur through this cycle. It’s time you fuel your idea and make it a reality. We could only help you with this little formula, what happens in between is going to be all about you.
