Are you struggling to stay on task? Do you often feel like you are jumping from point A to point B only to go back to point A again and forget what you were exactly doing?
Good news: you’re not alone. The bad news is: you will be alone with a struggling business if you don’t fix it.
You need to be a “monomaniac with a mission” to think you can accomplish everything by yourself, as Tom Peters, the author of In Search of Excellence, used to say.
As a CEO Coach, and founder of the COO Alliance, I always tell my clients that while multitasking may make you feel busy but it doesn’t produce any results; it’s impossible to get real results when doing two things at once. Saying “NO” will allow you to focus on more important things rather than taking more than you can handle. One of the core things the CEO’s that I’m mentoring benefit from me is learning to say no to the big shiny objects that they get attracted to when they start out as entrepreneurs.
