bu reauc ra cy – any organization where action is obstructed by insistence on unnecessary procedures and red tape.
Have you created bureaucracy in your business as a knee jerk reaction to try to avoid mistakes?
Any dummy can ADD a step, a form, a checklist, or an approval process. Keep doing that and your organization has transcended the problem by becoming the problem.
Stop the madness. Blow it up.
Being an entrepreneur is a great way to learn about yourself, because it requires you to look at who you are and how you think often. Those that don’t understand why they think how they do and that have done nothing to influence their thoughts or emotions, find themselves in a perpetual rut – with the same problems showing up over and over again.

Are you a self aware entrepreneur?
Did I get your attention?
We have been conditioned to think that when we struggle, if we just stay at it longer and harder that things will get better. But what if we are doing it wrong? What if we are going in the wrong direction?Will staying at it longer and harder help us then? No.

A personal challenge to see how big of an impact or contribution you can make. In this, it will never be over until we are satisfied, relent, or decide to do something else.
We win when we say we win.
