When I think about running a business, I think about how unique each entrepreneur and business owner is, and how differently they approach their businesses overall. Some of us are a bit farsighted– meaning that we can only see things way out in front of us and what lies ahead, and others of us are nearsighted, seeing everything up close and in detail, but not much beyond that.
So, I’d like to ask you: what helps you the most in your business? Does looking at an overall concept or theory allow you to execute better, or are you a more practical, hands-on kind of person?
The reason I ask is because there are different ways of learning and applying what you learn. And knowing what kind of learner you are can help speed up your ability to absorb, implement, and move forward in your business. Being aware of how you approach things, how you learn, and how you execute can be very helpful information.
If you know you are a broader-picture kind of person, you might be better served by creating ideas and the overall direction in your business, and then contracting out the more detail-oriented tasks and projects. On the other hand, if executing the details of a project and creating tangible results are what you’re great at, you may want to get support with the macro view of your business.
Most of us are very strong in one area or the other, and you can benefit from knowing where your strengths lie. Stop wasting time trying to be all things in every area of your business, and farm out the projects or tasks that just aren’t your forte. You’ll save time and money by knowing when to hire someone else to do it, and when you can do it quickly and easily yourself.
And if you need any help on either side of the coin, or where to find the right people to use in your business, just let me know. I’m always here for you and would be honored to help.
