“It’s a zoo around here, I can’t get everything done, everybody wants something from me”, are just some of the comments heard from horse business owners and managers complaining about their chaotic work days.
Granted, owners and managers are capable of doing most of the jobs on the farm with proficiency. But, their ambition coupled with know-how is a dangerous combination that leads to overwhelm and fatigue.
Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should. Delegate the tasks you can delegate, ditch the tasks that aren’t high priority and do the things in your business only you can do.
If your plate is too full, trade it in for a smaller plate.
