Today’s business world is unbelievably dynamic and has a crowded marketplace in which you need to compete. It’s easy to be lulled by suggested innovative, next gen or trending strategies, approaches and systems which are often touted as the answer to business growth, income and success.
You often feel like a whirligig, moving between worry about how to keep up with the ever-changing business landscape and chasing that one, must-have solution.
The unfortunate fact is that it often is not the answer or is complicated to put in place and run.
The reality is that managing your business consumes far more of your time, energy and money than ever expected. If you are not doing the work yourself, you are pulled so far into the operational aspects of the business that it becomes a herculean effort to gain clarity around your intentions, think strategically or put plans into motion for the great ideas that you have.
As contradictory as it may seem, when you reach this point, it is time to step back, be honest with yourself, and take a hard look at how work is getting done and by whom.
