What does this actually mean?
Most people would probably say they spend the majority of their time working in the business, not on it.
They are constantly bogged down with day-to-day tasks that keep them running and they can’t focus on long term projects because of this constant fires burning or emergencies coming up all over the place!
But there is a way to change things around so you don’t have such an intense work load anymore – by delegating certain responsibilities away from yourself while still staying aware enough for what needs doing when it really counts; taking care offside matters which will help scale your company without any additional stress.
In this episode of “Making Conversations Count”, Nick Cramp and Wendy Harris discuss the importance of getting the balance right when it comes to working on your business.
Listen, and you’ll understand more about how successful people make it work.
You need to establish good rules, habits, or disciplines.

Or even, banning use of the phone in general after a certain time.
