Pablo Picasso said: “Art is the elimination of the unnecessary.”

What’s unnecessary in your life right now? What keeps you from doing the things that you need to do?

Marie Kondo created a phenomenon with the idea of simplifying, getting rid of clutter, and stripping down to necessities and the things that bring you joy. People have been talking about Kondo-ing their homes and their relationships.

What about Kondo-ing your business practices and processes?

As the CEO of your small business, you may feel compelled to do ALL OF THE THINGS. I’m sorry, my friend, but it’s just not possible to take on all of those roles yourself and still give 100% in your most important role!
