Analyse your day.
How many productive decisions have you made?
How much time have you spent dealing with complaints, sorting out administrative mistakes, dealing with employee problems, production problems, customer/client issues, etc.
How much time have you spent procrastinating about important task, avoiding it completely perhaps?
Why? What delayed you? Was it because you were nervous or lacking confidence? Were you worried about new challenges. Or perhaps you feel you have inadequate skills to complete the task to the required standard.
Thinking we can do it all is where most of us cause our own problems – both in life and in running our businesses.
The short answer, if we are honest enough, is that we know we can’t do it all.
Support is critical, and when we recognise this, the benefits are substantial – less stress and much greater productivity.
