Focus First on One Thing
More is not always merrier when it comes to entrepreneurship, at least, not when it comes to ideas. You have a limited amount of time and energy to spend when you are starting a new business, and stretching yourself too thin across many ideas and pet projects will drain your resources and passion for any one particular project. Sure, you could give a little bit to several business and hope that one works out, but we believe you’ll see better results if you start with one and give it your all!
Delivering value to your customers means achieving results and solving the issues they find significant. To do that, you’ll need to plan, experiment, change, and repeat many times. So focusing on one thing at a time and saying “no” to the other 99 things that may want your attention will be one of the most crucial decisions you make as an entrepreneur.
Less Really Is More
As the saying goes, less is indeed more - less time spent on other pet projects means more time spent on your true vision and more time spent working towards that success. The GOATs of entrepreneurship like Oprah, Daymond John, Annie Malone, and Victoria Hernandez, got their start by focusing on one skill or industry and spending years of their lives perfecting it. Other successes will follow as long as you doggedly pursue and stay true to your motivation and vision.
