A person who organizes and manages any enterprise, especially a business, usually with considerable initiative and risk.
“Considerable initiative and risk”…yep, if you’re an entrepreneur you are probably nodding your head vehemently right about this time.
But if you’re nodding your head you’re also probably smiling, because most of the entrepreneurs that I know are happy with what they are doing, passionate about their pursuits and wouldn’t have it any other way.
These intrepid folks, or the successful ones anyway, are also fantastic jugglers. They have multiple balls in the air and seem to keep all of them, well most anyway, from dropping.
Here are a few tips that can help you boost your entrepreneurial skills and be a great juggler:
· Jugglers understand how to prioritize. There are some things that can be put off and some that just can’t mostly because of the repercussions that will ensue. Effective entrepreneurs (AKA jugglers) take prioritization to a whole new level of sophistication and don’t make excuses. They get it done in the correct order!
· Jugglers understand that not EVERYTHING has to be perfect for in the quest for absolute perfectionism ultimately things fall through the cracks.
· Jugglers understand when and how to outsource tasks that are not mission critical, leaving time for them to concentrate on what is most important for their business.
· Besides being excellent jugglers, successful entrepreneurs are also incredibly adept at time management and seem to get more accomplished in a 24-hour day than most people.
Lastly, most entrepreneurs are driven by the passion for what they’re doing. They are optimistic, see obstacles as challenges to be overcome and are stimulated, rather than overwhelmed, by the number of balls that they have in the air.
