The way you do things is inconsistent and reactive. You sit down to work and just plough through your ToDo list, unclear what is a priority because it all feels like a priority. You are running with an ineffective plan, or no plan at all.
Getting your staff to do things for you can feel like a disaster waiting to happen. You often second guess yourself as to what you could or should be giving others to do. Even though you know you can’t continue to do it all, the fear stops you.
You often feel overwhelmed. Stopping to think clearly, creatively & strategically almost never happens. You couldn’t possibly work any harder or longer but those revenue targets are taking so long to reach. It’s so disheartening.
