Have you seen the Sea Lions that hang out
around Newport, Oregon? It’s fascinating.
There are platforms right off a pier in a
fishing marina where the male sea lions
roam looking for food. There were over 100
there the day we visited.
The front raft had one sea lion on it – the
Alpha. The others had loads of them
mounded on top of each other sleeping.
However, there was no rest for the alpha.
He spent his time fighting off the others that
attempted to join him on his platform.
Not one was successful in the twenty
minutes that we were observing
this entertaining example of alpha
It made me think about a small
business owner mistake that TheMerit Group, in the feature article this month, call “self-sufficiency.”
Trying to do it all on your own
without getting assistance. That is also
exhausting, just like being the alpha sea
lion. Don’t be a lone sea lion. Don’t attempt
to be self-sufficient. Put a team in place to
assist you so you can avoid exhaustion and
perform at your best. I’ve made that one of
my goals for this month, how about you?
