Imagine you are a tight rope walker, you are on the edge of a ravine, your foot is poised ready to go, and your balance bar is firmly in your hands, think of the level of focus and training it took to reach that skill level…Now imagine if you got distracted – the outcome would probably not be good.
I use this example because in business, it takes an equivalent skill level, balance and focus to make our business successful.
The consequences of our actions could be similarly damaging to the longevity of our business if we do not focus appropiately or lose our concentration, which is why 80% of businessess fail within the first 2 years. We only have a limited amount of time and learning to manage our time appropriately is key. We need to work wisely and concentrate on specific areas that make a difference relating to our needs. Where should I be spending my time?
