We often feel like we need to be in a hurry to get where we need to go, and it is easy to become overwhelmed by your to-do list. This can lead to you cutting corners, rushing, and missing or forgetting steps. However, this can cost you more time in the long run as you will inevitably have to go back and do it again. Your Amazon business will struggle to reach its potential if you don’t correct this mindset and find a more effective methodology.


Today, we share why you need to slow down to grow faster and find your perfect world. We highlight the most effective ways to take care of and organize your to-dos and stress the advantages of having an accountability partner and getting feedback. We describe how to find the middle ground between being a perfectionist and a procrastinator.  We also share how to set-up a 15-minute hustle to knock off your most crucial outstanding task.


“It is better to put the effort and time into a task right from the beginning, rather than going back to correct things.” - Kristin Ostrander
