How valuable are your great ideas?

"You can't build a reputation on what you're going to do" -- Henry Ford

"A goal without an action plan is a day dream." -- Dr. Nathaniel Branden

It's not what you know; it's not even who you know; it's what you implement that counts.

Quotes and excerpts from Periodization, 12 Weeks to Breakthrough, by Brian Moran and Michael Lennington.

The 12 week performance period is being implemented by major companies. A friend, who is a relationship manager with one of the largest banks in the world, tells me they converted from a annual incentive program to a quarterly one. More on this later.
