During the past 2-3 weeks I have been immersed in launching the Hack the Entrepreneur podcast and blog. It was a much bigger project than I was expecting and I found myself losing focus on the big picture. This often happens to me, but always at different points during a project. This makes it hard to prepare myself beforehand.
When we get so immersed within our work and projects that we lose this focus on the big picture we tend to end up doing things that we shouldn’t be doing.
As entrepreneurs and business owners we are constantly aiming to delegate and outsource more and more tasks to other people, so that we can stay hyper-focused on what what we perceive as high-value work. The busier I get, the more ‘busy work’ I find myself doing. This is the exact opposite of what I know to be the high-value work of the owner.
What if we could stay focused and attentive to only those details that we know to be high-value?
