Are you so busy that you simply seem like you've fallen off course?
Are the deadlines more like suggestions?
Are you finding that your company is struggling, has lost its focus, or perhaps is out of control?
Do you feel like you have no control over what goes on day-to-day?
If so, you just might be winging it in your business.
If you think that proverbial chicken using its head cut off, you're not working according to your plans and goals. You may be extremely busy, but they are you productive? The 2 won't be the same. Being busy may mean you're simply going with the flow and doing what you need to at the moment to keep the company going.
Again, you're winging it. You're flying through the seat of your pants and do not possess the focus or the control you need to keep the business on goal. When you are not in charge, you're not productive.
And if you, the CEO and Visionary, aren't being productive, your company is simply treading water and never growing.
When your time is concentrated mainly on daily tasks and busy work within your business, you do not have time or energy to create goals and intends to make your business thrive. All you do is defined out fires, and also you don't have time to train your team to avoid setting fires in the first place.
You're winging it, not working it. You're wasting precious time doing things someone else must be doing. You aren't delegating effectively (or at all), and you are mistaking being busy to be productive.
