Vinh Giang: Strategy vs. Execution
Everything in business begins with an idea. From that idea, we formulate a strategy and depending on how well we execute the strategy, we'll get some kind of result, hopefully success. In magic everything also begins with an idea. The magician then needs to create a strategy and depending on how well he/she executes the magic, some kind of result will be achieved, hopefully astonishment.
Though the two seemingly different worlds appear to be identical, there's one primary difference. In the world of magic, flawless execution is critical. If the magician makes one mistake, just one, the magic is destroyed. The difference between amazement and failure is just one error.
