Why Are You Rushing?

Posted by: Rod Kurtz on February 12, 2008

Patient small business owners tend to delegate well and operate effectively. Patience—or lack thereof—is determined by one’s core belief about time. An impatient person feels there’s never enough time—a feeling that tends to make them rush and/or be overly demanding of others. With a closer look, however, they are often shocked to realize how much of their behavior is driven by self-induced time-urgency. Barring an actual crisis, our judgment about time is subjective and thus, with practice, can be substituted with a more generous view. Is your fundamental belief about time one of abundance, or lack?
