“Identify your problems but give your power and energy to solutions.”
The one thing that most entrepreneurs do not lack is energy. They seem to be born with an insatiable drive to get things done and to work very extended hours. This is both admirable and overwhelming. Those who’ve worked in entrepreneurial businesses will know the normal entrepreneurial culture: nothing that anyone else does is ever enough.
When one human being is planning, doing and achieving at a rate triple that of everyone else, it makes the average worker appear stagnant. Walt Disney said: “The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.” This is the mantra of many entrepreneurs. And it works.
With regards to the employees who can never keep up and feel that everything they do is never good enough, it is certainly not for the entrepreneur to slow his pace to pacify his workers. Instead there is a need to focus on the admiration and use it as a motivational tool to inspire employees to give their all and raise their personal standards.
If one person can achieve beyond average, so can everyone else.
“I’m here to build something for the long-term. Anything else is a distraction.”
