Sometimes there’s simply not time to get everything you want to get done, done.
It’s hard as a business owner to remember: Not everything is as important as we think it is.
I think that realization in and of itself is one of the biggest challenges facing any entrepreneur. With so much we WANT to do, those wants often get confused with “needs to get done”.
