EPISODE 176

Stop playing whack-a-mole

Biggest Takeaways You Don't Want to Miss:
  • It isn’t just about doing the right work; it’s about doing the right work at the right time. When it comes to seeing results from your work, timing is everything.
  • Instead of trying to focus on all the things, Builders focus on the root cause and solve that first. That way, they don’t waste time working on things that really won’t move them closer to their vision and can instead, focus only on the things that will have the biggest impact.
  • If you’re feeling like you’re working really hard but seeing very little results, take a step back and make sure that you are working on the right work. 
  • A Builder’s job is not to solve problems. Your first job is to identify the right problems to solve.
