Early into his Q&A session Mr. Kraft stated "Life is about execution, not just dreaming."
This is true in both sports and business. If you don't execute in sports, you lose the game. Don't execute in the playoffs? Your season is over. If you don't execute in business, you lose the deal. Continue to not execute, you will eventually go out of business.
Though I could have listened to Kraft talk for days about the New England Patriots (his Vladimir Putin/Superbowl ring story was incredible), the business-oriented nuggets in Kraft's speech were even more interesting. If you get a chance to hear Kraft talk, do it. He was interesting, often funny and very inspiring.
