A long time ago I heard a saying that “the only thing a race car driver should worry about is winning the race”.
This means the race car driver isn't doing other stuff throughout the day...
He’s not hauling tires across the pits...
He’s not in the garage replacing engine parts...
His job is basically to eat, sleep, and race.
And this got me thinking…
As a business owner, your job is to ‘win the race’.
Because you’re in the driver's seat when it comes to your business.
So, the more you can stay focused on your business, then the better.
That means focusing on the things you’re really good at...
And let other people focus on the things you’re not so good at.
Or simply don’t have the time to deal with it.
Successful business owners should do everything in their power to make sure they’re not distracted from “winning the race”.
You shouldn’t be worrying about IT Policy or IT Processes...
You shouldn’t be wasting time thinking about whether your data is backed up..
Or making sure you’ve got an accurate list of your IT infrastructure...
Or concerned with hardware repairs to make sure systems don’t end up out of action...
None of that stuff is a good use of your time.
Your time is better spent on things in your business that move the needle.
You’re the race car driver in your business…
So, make sure everything is set up around you so that you can win the race.
When it comes to managing your IT, this is one area you can confidently leave in the safe hands of somebody else...
For example, partnering with an IT Policy and ITSM Process Consultant.
