It has been a very long time since I have written a blog post, so I figured I would start one today and shoot for once a week.
This year has been crazy, insane, relieving and well, did I mention crazy!
This post is about time, mindshare and partners.
We all have tons of ideas in our heads and it is almost as if anyone who grew up in the 80′s has a horrid case of ADD….huh? SQUIRREL..
There is always that little shiny idea that we want to pick up and just run with. As a business owner you only have so much time in the day and really you can only surround yourself with so many good people before you start to find your life is just managing partners.
I started this year with 6 businesses and now I am down to 4. The thing I have learned is that you discover your core talent, passion and stick to it. Find partners that can work autonomously and are really good at what they do. That great new earth shattering, life altering, groundbreaking idea may be hard to resist pursuing ( especially in this new bubble ).
But if you have a good team of partners, ones that can ground you, float that shiny idea by them…if the idea is a good idea then one of your businesses should be able to execute on it. If not, keep focusing on your core…never be afraid to pass the idea onto someone who can make it a reality.
What so you do to keep yourself focused?
