I can't think of a time in my life where I have experienced significant growth, without significant effort. That's true for pretty much all of us. We all know that our growth (as humans, spouses, entrepreneurs, etc.) comes from doing the hard things, yet we so often focus on trivial things…tasks that we can check off of our to-do list to feel some sense of accomplishment, but in reality, we're just procrastinating the important stuff.
This week, I'm challenging you to look at everything you do for your company, and ask yourself if YOU are the right person for the job.
How do you know you're not the right person? Simple…If someone else can do it, you're not the right person.
Entrepreneurs should be focused on the things that ONLY they can do. More than likely, those are the things that would grow your business the most – the hard things.
Tune in below and I'll break down exactly how I'm putting this philosophy to use in my own company.
