Yes, great point PEYTON. I am approaching this (massively multifaceted and nuanced) topic from the lens of watching others (and myself for that matter) work very hard and execute perfectly on non-existent or unsubstantiated plans. i.e. lots of treading water very well but not much actual progress across the pool.

In my own life, once I arrive at a true “chief and definite aim,” execution comes naturally. The only time I have had to truly force myself to execute on something is when it was not aligned with my goals, values and personality.

Thank you for raising this point!
