Why is it important for an owner to set goals and direction for their business?

There are times when business is so fruitful that “all hands must be on deck.” This is good to a point, but never let things reach critical stress points. This is not good for the individuals, nor is it for the business as a whole. When things spiral out of control, then mistakes are made, interaction among co-workers can become testy, and in general it seems to take twice as long to accomplish projects than when times are tough. 

The responsibilities of an owner involve setting goals and direction, monitoring and controlling the results of those goals, and integrating the people around you into the systems you create. Make sure that you are able to do this with a clear head and proper sense of purpose.
