What's your highest and best use?

You may have heard the term highest and best use in real estate. Appraisers and real estate professionals use this to determine the most profitable use of property. Here's the definition of highest and best use from the PrepAgent Real Estate Exam site:


"A potential use cannot be considered to be the highest and best use unless it is all four of the following:


1. Legally allowable 2. Physically possible 3. Financially feasible 4. Maximum utility / Profitability"


This, at long last, brings me to the point - are you at your highest and best use? You're running a business. Assuming it's legal, physically possible, and financially feasible, is it as profitable as it can be? You do what you do - whatever that is: doctor / lawyer / fund manager / caterer / etc. Chances are, unless your business is actually accounting, you are wasting valuable, potentially profitable, time working on accounting for your business. Can you honestly say that scanning receipts or emailing invoices is a better use of your time than running your business? I didn't think so...
