Sorting Your Hats
My psychologist once told me to make an org chart for my business. I might have laughed out loud, since there’s one full-time employee.
But the exercise was profound. Like many small business owners, I wear a lot of hats. CEO, Travel Agent, Writer, and Marketing Director are just a few. I often jam several on my head at once, forgetting that they fit best one at a time. Such hat confusion can lead to wasted time, lack of focus, and mis-allocated resources.
