We sometimes put off the time to invest in our teams and company structure. I understand the urge to delay it, as we already have so much on our plates that we resist one more thing, and creating these structures takes time and effort. Ultimately, the project will be worthwhile, mainly because you will gain peace of mind but also because you will have continued to create an ever-evolving company that produces excellent and consistent results and that grows as it is meant to.

With time, the people you teach will improve. As they improve, you will improve – “a rising tide lifts all boats.” Those you teach will teach you more than what you teach them, and you will feel fulfilled because you made this beautiful world a little bit better.
As your career progresses and you start to manage people, a phenomenon will occur. You will become more distant from the frontlines, the place where the majority of operations are occurring. It will happen naturally, as others will be involved in the day-to-day, and you will supervise and work on the company’s strategy.
Being a parent is the hardest job. My advice is: above all, be flexible and do not be hard on yourself. Balancing parenthood and work is difficult, and we must all find our solutions. What matters is the intention and the effort. The rest will work itself out. Let me know if you have any other great ideas!
Fun is an attitude that can very easily get lost in the middle of all the responsibilities. But the more you create those habits and that culture, the more it will be the default mode, and the more it will become a virtuous cycle for everyone. So, keep having fun and enjoy your work. It will make the journey that much better!
You are the sum of your habits – they determine your actions, and your actions give you the results you get, which create the life you are living. Your life right now is the sum of all your past habits because you are where your past actions have put you.
Looking back, you will never regret having invested in yourself today rather than a year or two years from now. The sooner you start, the better because you are your best investment, and use your time and resources.
Try to get 80% of your schedule set and only modify the balance. You can relax knowing that you will have most of what matters to you in order. And then, keep going, be persistent. You will find your new and improved routine!
The only way you will gain the power to do more is to create systems that work with minimal intervention from you – this is applicable for your work, your personal life, and practically everywhere else. If your system doesn’t work, your growth will ultimately have limits.
