We hear them talking about big. Principles big ideas things that we've heard a million times things that aren't necessarily always helpful old for those of us who are in the trenches who are really trying to build something a meaning but we really don't know how to take the next step.

We're in the business of turning clever ideas into customer value. That's what we do and the thing is great ideas and great creative work. Take time they take energy is one of the things I wrote about in hurting tigers is leaders. We have to protect the time and energy of our team in order to provide them the space. They need to do their best work. Well we need to do that for ourselves as well and if you're a freelancer an an entrepreneur somebody who's running your own business. You have to manage yourself by protecting your time and energy to do that work. That is truly valuable the things you're being paid paid for well. Doing things like administrative work accounting invoicing. That doesn't necessarily leave you at the time and energy..
