“Set up your system so employees allocate the proper time for each task, and another huge thing is that as we start getting really busy, a lot of people throw away their operational systems and that’s just a big no go!”
“Do the estimate on the spot and be done with it.”
“A lot of things that end up in your idea graveyard are things that just never got the proper focus.”
“When I can get out there and when I do get out there early morning and get my exercise in first, ideas start flowing, things make sense, the answers come in and everything just flows.”
“If you don’t honor a commitment to yourself, nobody’s going to respect your boundaries as well.”
