“In youth we learn; in age we understand”
Marie von Ebner-Escheback
Do you ever feel overwhelmed with all there is to know about running a company?
Do you ever feel like you'll never learn it all?
You're right, you won't.
So stop worrying about it. Stop chasing the latest, greatest way of doing things.
Instead, start focusing on truly understanding the basic principles of business and implementing them.
Basic principles are those 20 systems you're building into your company. Don't try to learn the latest Facebook ad strategy until you have a solid understanding of your market, your message and your product/service delivery. Don't get fancy until you have the core building blocks in place.
By all means, keep reading and keep your mind open to ideas. Watch videos. Listen to podcasts. Seek to understand how the new supports what you already know.
But don't get stressed out because you're not ready to implement all that new information. Just use the data to help you understand the core principles and systems. Look for the basic premises in the new shiny ideas.
Seek to understand a topic deeply, not add on a mountain of new information to your already overworked brain.
Keep it simple. Do the basics. Build a solid machine. You can always add bells and whistles later on 🙂
Win the day!
