I remember as a kid going to the mall and trying to walk up the down escalator.
Only, if you walked too slow, you’d still be sliding backwards, but if you began running, you’d eventually make it to the top.
That’s exactly how far too many business owners operate their business. They are running against the escalator when trying to keep up with everything they need to do.
Too often they are running hard like this because it’s all they know to do.
Instead of delegating to others and managing expectations, the business leader continues running hard, and the business struggles to reach its full potential.
This can easily happen to any busy business owner who is too nice, or they don’t communicate well, or they don’t make time to inspect work, or they have too much trust people are doing their jobs. Does any of this sound familiar?
