It is just me, or have you noticed that your business-related to-do list seems to get bigger with every passing year? Given that the length of a day won’t be shedding its 24 hour limit any time soon, how do you effectively accomplish a growing list of responsibilities in a finite amount of time?

Yes, to secret " Getting others involved". Accept the fact that you are replaceable ( and that is a reality) . Give up more than you can handle. Delegating some of your work to your staff and prioritizing and focusing on more productive activities- is a time well spent .

Exactly. But it's so easy to get tripped up. Small business owners in particular can have a hard time determining where they are replaceable versus where they aren't, and even when someone is aware of this, it can still be very hard to let go.

Hi Adam,

I think being "realistic" is a very important piece of advice! It's something many entrepreneurs unfortunately don't do. Overoptimistic estimates lead to missing of goals and thus frustration. This cycle can discourage entrepreneurs especially when they are starting out. It's so much easier to focus on reaching attainable goals and better for your business in the long run.

I think established business owners (and their management) tend to be worse than entrepreneurs who can afford to be a bit idealistic, and the bigger the company, the further away from reality and practicality it can get.
