Working on vs. working in

There’s a big and importance difference between working in your business and working on your business. Likewise, working on your career vs. working in your career.

You can’t spend all your time doing the work. You need to plan, strategize, and optimize. You need to build systems. You need to ensure you work on the right things: Direction is often more important than speed. This will help you become more effective. You will move towards and achieve your Goals faster.

Learn to take a step back and get the overview. Leaders need to think clearly to lead clearly.

Don’t just put your head down and grind. Look where you’re going—it’ll save you a few falls and bruises.

This concept transfers to most areas in life.

Of course, you need both. You can’t just plan—you certainly need execution. But if you want to win, you need to plan and systematize.
