Does this sound familiar: You head to the office early to finally review your week’s shipping and financials. You read your email first…and that’s when everything else gets in the way. A prospective customer you have been chasing wants to talk, a key employee is ill and will be out for a week, an inventory shipment will be delayed (or a technical glitch will slow your process to a crawl). Suddenly your day is completely rescheduled and you haven’t touched what you set out to do. The ensuing 10-12 hours are spent handling the normal daily activities, along with the crises you found in your inbox first thing. By evening, you are frustrated to realize that you never even looked at the shipping report or financials. With no more energy to give, you head home.
