Less is More.
Ari adds that besides all the systems and techniques to doing less and achieving more it is also the mindset shift that needs to happen. You absolutely need to go from working inside your business and getting distracted on small things to stepping back and getting a bird’s eye view on where you are going. Remember the famous quote “If you don’t know where you are going, any road will take you there.”? Take 30 mins out of your day today and ask yourself this question: “If I could only work for an hour each day and not just keep the company afloat but continue its growth, what needs to happen and what changes and systems need to be put in place to get there and remove myself from daily operations.”
