This week was week of headaches. Got a lot of good things going on, but as life is always complex, business becomes complex as well. And nothing ever comes easy; in this case, things that were right there to be grabbed are slowly drifting away and some things that were already gone, all of a sudden are here and closed up. Unbelievable. The roller coaster of emotions keeps surprising us.
One thing I must admit is that as things develop and progress, one’s imagination starts to wander. You start losing focus as stronger and more important deals come in. I am sure this happens to all, but it must be controlled. We have some very good current customers and the team and I are trying our hardest to stay focused on servicing them and our principals. We have hired another person and are committed to making sure that our original partners stay well-serviced.
Another thing that is happening is that the complexity of the projects is increasing and although I am up to the challenge, my time is being greatly constrained. I have no problem with hard assignments or with complicated scenarios (I can make the simplest things really complicated) – but let’s be honest, it takes more time to solve a differential equation than to add fractions. So, I am going to have to delegate some things I do not want or hire another person. The fact that I am broke as a doornail kind of makes it difficult for the second option to happen, so I am guessing the first one will have to work…
The good thing is that I trust my partners and I know they can do whatever is requested from them. I will have to spend some time educating them on the new duties, but all in all, as we know, part of the fun of work is learning and it keeps things interesting. If I can’t delegate, then I am the one that has an issue.
Kids are out of school and they are flip-flopping our schedules. Now let’s try and enjoy the summer break with them and let’s make sure I do not forget to write a blog because I am supposedly having too much fun.
Keep Calm and Stay Humble…
