Running The Company, Or Running Yourself into The ground


Passion is great. Even if the activity takes up our time there is a lot to be said for doing that activity with passion. But if we need that time for other things we may have an issue. If you are running a company there is a temptation to do so many things yourself. But that will prove impossible and inefficient. The skill is finding what to delegate and what to keep directly under your control.


  • Never spend time doing things that you could hire others to do cheaply. If you run the company your time is worth more than the $20.oo per hour. You can hire a temp or assistant to do this work. The management tricks are to always have useful work for them to do, and to find the dependable individuals.
  • Find others to sort through data and provide the reports. This is a serious job; major decisions depend on reliable information. You should be looking to hire someone more capable (or more specialized in this particular field) than yourself.
  • If you do a lot of selling you might do well to hire others for the groundwork. Take over the sale when parties are interested. The buyer might react well when being handed over of the head of the company. When a deal is closed, tell those who did the groundwork that of lot of the credit belongs to them.
  • There tends to be a big picture and the details. Details can be important, and sometimes it can be hard to tell the significant factors from the minor; we don’t always know if it is a minor detail or not. But things that distract you from the big picture are a nuisance. Put the big picture in a place of priority, and emphasis everything that contributes to this.


Micromanaging is doing all the details yourself. The idea is to be a people manager; manage the overall operation, and manage those who are successfully running each of its departments.

作为悉尼旅行社的中流砥柱,联合旅游推出了多种冬季观鲸套餐,小船自助游观鲸,也有大船观鲸,多种套餐定制。每年的冬天五月到十一月,巨大的鲸鱼都会季节性迁徙到了澳洲的海岸,它们都会从拜伦湾(Byron Bay)和哈维湾(Hervey Bay)向北迁徙。


我们会在每天都会安排船只驶出著名的悉尼港前往各个海角,优雅的座头鲸都会在冬季经此沿东海岸北上。尤其是七八月份,出海观鲸能碰到鲸鱼的概率高达90%。在陆地上,悉尼最好的观鲸地点是在南部海角 (South Head)的海口(The Gap),但是鲸鱼一般远离海岸线,所以观鲸的最好选择还是坐船出海。我们一般从五月起就开始组团,因为这个月开始我们就能在拜伦湾(Byron Bay)也能看见这些身形巨大、行动优雅的动物。在澳洲的最东点——拜伦角(Cape Byron)灯塔外的海域,鲸鱼会在离岸仅百米的碧波中嬉戏。从观鲸船的水底听音器里,您可以听见雄性座头鲸令人难忘的歌声。在悉尼以南的泽维斯湾海洋公 园(Jervis Bay Marine Park),您几乎可以在平静清澈的水域中看见鲸鱼游动。这里是一群群宽吻海豚的冬季家园。
