Do You Regularly Sharpen the Saw?

If you have ever read or studied the Steven Covey's The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, habit 7 is commonly known as "Sharpen the Saw". Covey uses the analogy of a woodcutter who is sawing for several days straight and as a consequence becomes less and less productive as the blade is dulled and the woodcutter becomes more fatigued. Covey's solution is to sharpen the saw from time to time to remain effective. Covey suggests that by renewing the four dimensions of your nature, you can work more quickly, effectively and effortlessly.

This is not to be underestimated, and anyone who is cynical about this has obviously never owned a business. As the person where "the buck stops here", every business owner will understand the value of inspirational thoughts or examples, when faced with a tough situation.
