In this episode, I react to a Wes Kao Twitter thread called, “Be an end to end operator.” This is an excellent thread, in which Wes argues the importance of being good at both strategy and execution. That’s end to end. Be good at both. 

In a related episode, please listen to my conversation with Megan Macaluso in which we argue about which is more important, strategy or execution. Get Megan’s episode (006) here:
