There will always be more problems to solve and potential opportunities to explore than you have the resources for.  How do you deal with this individually and as a team?  

  • Working hard is a big part of the solution.  Waking up early and staying a little late never killed anyone.  
  • Working efficiently is also critical.  Work with urgency and accuracy without over-processing.

These however are just prerequisites.  The real issue is how you prioritize and sequence what you are working on.  If you are leading a team it is how effectively you align the team around prioritization and execution.  This gets exponentially harder as your company grows.
