The Undisciplined Pursuit of the "Wrong Stuff"

The More is not the Problem...the Wrong Stuff is the Problem
Great Leadership Lessons, Note 24

I have a friend who is a successful small business owner. His business involved providing a product and the service for installing the product. My friend reads a lot about leadership.

Great Leadership Lessons, 23
