Manage: Are You Focusing on What Matters?

Be More Productive & Get Engaged

Rainbow_woman_fieldIf we weren’t already working 24/7, it’s now 24/7 combined with social media, endless Twitter and non-stop meetings. Many entrepreneurs are busier than ever. The question is, are you focusing your energy on what matters most?

Pause. Think about direction. Identify what can make it easier for you to succeed on your journey. And, get a SCORE mentor as your coach. “Energy not time is the primary currency of high performance,” say Jim Loehr and Tony Schwartz authors of the Power of Full Engagement.

Three Quick Tips:
1) Don’t reinvent the wheel.
2) Surround yourself with supporters.
3) Plan for staffing needs (contractors then employees).
