Are you Chasing Field Mice or Antelope?

Being an owner operator can be tough. You have worked all day only to be sitting there at 9.27pm trying to finish that last wee thing that is going to keep you awake at night. It’s sometimes worthwhile to take a step back to see if we are operating at full efficiency.

“A lion is fully capable of capturing, killing, and eating a field mouse. But it turns out that the energy required to do so exceeds the caloric content of the mouse itself. So a lion that spent its day hunting and eating field mice would slowly starve to death. A lion can’t live on field mice. A lion needs antelope. Antelope are big animals. They take more speed and strength to capture and kill, and once killed, they provide a feast for the lion and her pride. … So ask yourself at the end of the day, ‘Did I spend today chasing mice or hunting antelope?” – Gingrich

Makes you think doesn’t it! Now, where did my wonderful intern go…? Its bed time for me!
