What are ways to work on the right things? Andy and Craig talk about whether to avoid distractions and daydreaming to regain focus and productivity.  

Andy feels like he is scattered, losing focus, and not making much progress. For him, managerial duties feel like busy work. What should he do right now and in the future? It’s about finding balance between individual contributorship versus strategic planning as a CEO.

Craig believes it’s okay for founders to think about the bigger picture and not feel guilty about it. He talks about hiring and bringing on four new people in the next four weeks. Although it’s a major disruption, it’s worth his time and money to get them settled in to be successful.
