Strategy vs. Tactics and Why You Need Both in less than 200 Words

If 5 frogs are on lily pads and one decides to jump off, how many frogs are left on lily pads?


One decided to jump but did not take action.

“Learn the difference between strategy which is “what do we want to accomplish” and tactics which are ‘what are we going to do specifically to carry out the strategies’ many many people cannot understand the difference.” — Len Stillman

Talk is cheap, action matters.

Action wins. Period.

We can strategize and talk all we want but as people say, “if when you look back years later you aren’t embarrassed by your first product, you launched too late.”

Isn’t that the truth?

It’s about getting it done and then launching. Do it. Make it happen. Then make it happen again and again and again.

Talk is nice, brainstorming is okay sometimes, but it is all for nothing unless action is there also.

We can do many things in theory but without putting action behind the talk… it’s all for nothing.

Keep pushing.

“Don’t ask, act.” — Harrison Wendland
