I quit and I want you to quit too. I also want you to teach your team to quit too. I know it sounds crazy. But I QUIT.
OK, OK... I am not actually going "quit" - allow me to explain. In order to be the best and accomplish everything you want to do, you can't do everything. So the one thing you need to quit and teach your team to quit, is doing everything. I want you to QUIT DOING EVERYTHING. And teach your team to quit doing everything too.
In order to achieve your goals, you need complete clarity and focus. However, if you're scrambling to do everything you're not focused and you can't do the really important things well.
I remember when I was running my agency, I was doing design, project management, sales, client retention, finances, invoicing, and more. In order to grow the agency I had to QUIT doing all that and gain clarity on where to focus my time and attention.

The other thing you need to QUIT, is quit trying to control everything. You can't be the superhero who's the best at everything. Surround yourself with people who are better than you at certain tasks. So figure out how to relinquish control to them and let them be the rockstar.
I hear all the time, "I don't have enough time" but it's because you need to quit. Quit doing everything!
