My favorite quote by Einstein is “Vision without execution is merely hallucination.” The first time I read this I was surprised at the glaring truth to this simple statement. I also realized it’s sometimes easier said than done.
Einstein’s quote helped me realize there are two distinct parts to reaching your big ideas, dreams and goals. First you need a vision. Second, you need a plan to accomplish the vision. One does not happen without the other. Visionaries can be challenged by creating a plan and planners sometimes lack the necessary vision to keep the dream alive.
