I have the good fortune of working with a group of MBA students who are helping me hone my business and the next steps. Today, they made me think about my business values, my fundamental purpose, my mission… it has been awhile since I did this exercise. The last time was when I wrote my business plan over years ago.
There are things I do because I have to. There are things I do because I get lost in them for hours. In business you should focus on what you are good at, the value you add to your business and try as much as possible to fan out the rest. Today I got lost… in what I do best creating, inventing, planning… organizing. It reminded me of what I should be working on and accept the painful truth that I need to hire some assistance for social media and bookkeeping.
While being lost I found this great picture of these beautiful Spanish ladies… I will find one of those dresses and I will strut around market pouring wine for others and spreading joy… another thing I am good at.
