If you’re like many business owners, you know a ton of stuff about the field you’re in. You’re a hard worker.  You have tried a number of things to manage your time, space and information, but systems and processes just don’t stick.

Why is it when it comes to staying focused and getting things done, you feel like a failure?  It’s not true, of course, but it can feel that way.

As entrepreneurs, we can be fun, dynamic, creative, inventive, expansive thinkers, out-of-the-box thinkers, quick-think-on-your-feet thinkers, adaptable, sensitive, and frequently have above-average intelligence.

We can also experience what can seem like odd paradoxes in behavior:

- Easily distracted one day and hyper focused the next
- Unaware of details one day and compulsive about details the next
- Assertive and demanding one day and then passive the next
- Amazingly forgetful sometimes and memory for the most minute detail the next
- Very unorganized in some aspects of life but extremely organized with elaborate systems in another aspect.
- Desiring structure but rebelling against it or abandoning structure
- Risk taker that can be stopped by endless “what-if”scenarios
- Even an Outgoing Introvert

You can’t get there alone. In fact, you can’t get very far at all.
~ Keith Ferrazzi – author of Never Eat Alone
