The Small and Medium Entrepreneur has direct contact with his market, full control over his production and employees, understands all the moving parts of his setup and has a great vision. However, the vision lacks execution. The lack of execution is not due to the lack of conviction in the vision, but mostly due to prioritization. Below is an adaptation of Stephen Covey’s time management matrix for a typical entrepreneur showing disproportionate focus on tasks that are important, but have become urgent only because they were not addressed properly at origin. The more time spent on these tasks, the more the anxiety, the more the uncertainties, the more are the opportunities for slips.

As a man was passing a group of elephants, in a village, he suddenly stopped, confused by the fact that these huge creatures were being held by only a small rope tied to their front leg. No chains, no cages. The elephants seemed happy and content. It was obvious that those elephants could, at anytime, break away from their bonds but for some reason, they did not.
He saw a trainer nearby and asked why these animals just stood there and made no attempt to get away. “Well,”the trainer said, “when they are very young and much smaller we use the same size rope to tie them and, at that age, it's enough to hold them. As they grow up, they are conditioned to believe that they cannot break away. They believe the rope can still hold them, so they never try to break free.”
The man was amazed. These animals could at any time break free from their bonds but because they believed they couldn’t, they were stuck right where they were.
We sometimes go through our lives hanging onto beliefs that we cannot do something, simply because we never tried. Never stop trying. Let’s be persistent in our efforts and make ourselves efficient
