Do You TEND to TOIL or TOIL to TEND?
Most business owners tend to TOIL more than they ever imagined! They spend their time working long hours, putting out fires, dealing with recurring mistakes, and finding themselves too worn out to enjoy the fruit of their labor.
Maybe you are familiar with the story of Adam and Eve, how “In the beginning” God gave them instructions to take care of a garden. What a gift! A turnkey operation—all systems perfectly designed. The entire world was suddenly theirs and the only thing they were required to do was TEND, or take care of, it—not to work themselves into the ground.
