Finding Leverage Versus Taking Shortcuts

These are my own thoughts on finding leverage versus taking shortcuts as it applies to business:

Leverage: Positive thing.  Turning one action or effort and having effect on more than one part of your business.  Controlled leverage can make a business soar.

Taking Shortcuts: Negative thing.  Looking for ways to deliver less, to gain an “acceptable result.”  Only good for short term profits or time savings…in the long-term, kills your business.
