The Little Things
My grandmother was fond of the expression “the devil is in the details”. Over the years I have heard that same expression used over and over again in many different forms, but it always means the same thing. Most ideas have value, but it is the execution of each part of the idea that is the difference between success and failure. After all, anyone can have an amazing idea, but implementation of that idea into a form that is easy to understand and use is what makes it accessible and approachable by the masses. If it only makes sense to you, then even your best idea is of very little value to the person standing next to you.
