Time Management

I'm simply amazed at how many business owners lack time management skills. This all ties in with making the correct decsions on which tasks to take on. They tell me that they want new sales, more time with family, etc... and yet when you observe them on any given day they're running around like mad and getting very little done.

In addition, their organization is structured improperly and its very nature actually hinders growth. Do you think, Bill Gates runs around all day putting the little fires out. Sure, not all of us are Microsoft but that being said we may want to think about budgeting for staff that can assist us if even for a half day a week, to catch up on paperwork and outstanding action items. The star of the show must be center stage rather than pushing set props around behind the curtains.
