Kenny Rogers sang about knowing when to hold ’em, when to fold ’em, when to walk away and when to run. The same advice can be applied to your business.
Business can get crazy and we begin to fall behind. It’s at that time we need to set aside a few minutes to take stock. Is there anything that can be temporarily put on the back burner? Perhaps long enough to come up with a solution? How necessary is that task? Evaluate the importance of an item against how busy you are in any given moment.
If you determine the task is absolutely necessary to the success of your business but you are having difficulty finding the time to complete it, perhaps you ought to consider some assistance. If you take the time to check your course of action with each hand you’re dealt, moving your business forward is less of a gamble and more of an investment – with far better odds.
