I have had this antique Burroughs adding machine in my office going back to my days as a practicing CPA. It serves as a symbolic reminder to me to continuously improve efficiency and effectiveness so that businesses don’t fail. It also reminds me that just because it works doesn’t mean we should continue to use it. What antique technology, processes, or systems do you have in your business? What metaphorical gears do you need to shift?
Building and growing a prosperous company is a difficult proposition, even for the experienced serial entrepreneur. Typically, the leaders who succeed are those who Go Slow and invest the time to strategically think and execute, minimizing the fluctuations that occur when a business outgrows it underlying capabilities. These leaders are better positioned to manage their company’s lifeline and anticipate disruptors that will greatly impact their business model.
The most common roadblock for entrepreneurs on this journey is the simple lack of practical tools, methodologies, and advice to navigate the complex road to high-performing business.
