Grand Strategy

Grand Strategy

In 2008, Marvel Studios released the Iron Man movie which went on to a great success (and one of my own favourite movies of all time).

Four years later, they had done some other solo movies like Captain America: The First Avenger, Thor and Iron Man 2, movies to introduce other characters so that they could finally do the original Avengers movie which grossed $1.5 BILLION! That is a lot of money you know? It sits on #3 on the list of highest grossing movies of all time.

They were able to do that because of the grand mission they designed and started executing in bits, starting in 2008. I think this teaches me the importance of having a grand strategy, the big overall goal that one tucks neatly at the back of the mind while you go about everyday life.

That way, we longer follow every idea that comes our way because we now have a filter. If I stumble upon an idea, I immediately check if it fits this grand strategy, if it does not, discarded. Promptly!

Things like executing a grand strategy also takes some time but it is always worth it in the end.

The latest one in the movement, Avengers: Age of Ultron is now showing in the cinemas and it seems to be doing well.
