As the title suggests, McChesney outlines what he considers to be the 4 most important disciplines for executing tasks and hitting goals. This summary will cover each of the 4 disciplines and discuss how they can be enacted. The first discipline we will cover is focusing on the wildly important. Discipline two covers acting on the lead measures followed by discipline three: keeping a compelling scoreboard. Finally, we’ll cover discipline four: creating a cadence of accountability.
"The real enemy of execution is your day job! We call it the whirlwind. It’s the massive amount of energy that’s necessary just to keep your operation going on a day-to-day basis; and ironically, it’s also the thing that makes it so hard to execute anything new. The whirlwind robs from you the focus required to move your team forward."
