In these times of our economies in a possible depression, small business focus is more important than ever, the japanese merchant Mitsui Takafuse had this to say about family business focus in the 17th century:
Never waste your attention on matters that have nothing to do with your work …. Remember that it is the family business that must not be neglected for a moment.
Being focused on your small business also means getting all tasks not crucial for your small business eliminated or outsourced.
Concentrate on your goals and on nothing else.
