-product lines to take focus
-strategies to execute
The difference between a good leader and an excellent leader is that an excellent leader knows what to cut and when.
Pruning the superfluous, the sick and the dead from your business is elemental in its success. It’s also important to cut things that may be working or healthy but are not on par with your goals. Though it may be uncomfortable in the short-term, it’s important that you, as a leader move on from what is no longer relevant in pursuit of the long-term good of your business.
