Host James Patrick brings on business architect Michael Zeller to discuss why it is important for entrepreneurs to create and open space for themselves to think and strategize.

The question the two discuss is do entrepreneurs want to be an operator in their business, trying to control all the day-to-day tasks; or do they want to be an owner who is directing the vision and direction for the brand?

When we are out of energy or out of time, we no longer have the ability to make smart decisions that move us closer to our goals. We hit a ceiling and cannot get beyond that.

We were not raised to create space for ourselves to think and strategize but instead we were raised to keep our heads down and work hard – which is not necessarily working smart.

The goal is to figure out how to create space and rhythms to balancing working intensely while allowing space to breathe because the key to high performance is taking that time off.
