If you are anything like me, you live and die by the yellow Post-It. These genius creations hold my ideas to be explored later and the “to do” lists that rule my existence. Without the yellow 3M sea, I just might be lost and rudderless. This may sound odd, but as the director of a rapidly growing nonprofit that helps family businesses succeed generation to generation, my board of directors and family business members expect me to keep the organization moving forward. Everyone has their own way of mastering tasks throughout their day, week, month and year.
As a family business leader, you no doubt have attended countless seminars, listened and (hopefully) learned from numerous speakers, and spent many hours in meetings outside of your family business. You may also have a “to do” list that seems to have a life of its own. What items from these seminars and speakers have made it to the top of your list?
