The internet is full of differing advice when it comes to running a successful
business – it seems everyone has an opinion on how to do it - and it can sometimes feel like a game of Tug ‘O War trying to work out which advice to follow and which isn’t right for your business.
In this month’s blog, I decided to take a look at just some of the conflicting advice offered to business owners and see how they measure up against each other.
Is Failing To Plan, Planning To Fail?
Do you use a to do list? You should! Do you organise every part of your working day? Why not??
There are hundreds of articles around suggesting that being organised and planning your work each day will make you the most successful you can be.
But is this really the best way to run a business? Creating a to do list each morning may mean that you become inflexible to any emergencies that day or may unfairly prioritise tasks that could be delegated or postponed.
