The Main Thing

Jul 8, 2020 | Living the Dream

Running your own business is a job of balancing tasks. Doing the thing which produces the best return is the main thing if one is to prosper. The main thing has to be the thing you give all your attention to.

Keeping the main thing the main thing is not easy. There are always some essential tasks that have to be done that don’t add traction to the main thing.

Meanwhile, the graphic designer is useful when an enterprise starts up, expands its product and service lines, or works to position itself to grow into new markets.

Looking for my lost time on the clock.
