    The Entrepreneur, the Manager & the Technician, from the book 'The E-MYTH REVISITED', recommended for every small business owner.

    "Build a business, not a job"

    "The Entrepreneur

    The entrepreneurial personality turns the most trivial condition into an exceptional opportunity.
    The Entrepreneur is the visionary in us, the Dreamer.
    The energy behind every human activity, the imagination that sparks the fire of the future, the catalyst of the change.

    He lives in the future, never in the past, rarely in the present. He's happiest when left free to construct images of "what-if" and "if-when"
    ...
    The Entrepreneur is our creative personality, always at its best dealing with the unknown, prodding the future and creating probabilities out of possibilities, engineering chaos into harmony.

    The problem is, how can he pursue the opportunities without getting mired down by the feet ?
    The way he usually chooses is to bully, harass, excoriate, flatter, cajole, scream, and finally, when all else fails, promise whatever he must to keep the project moving.
    To the Entrepreneur, most people are problems that get in the way of The Dream.

    The Manager

    The managerial personality is pragmatic.
    Without The Manager there would be no planning, no order, no predictability.

    The Manager is the part of us that goes to Sears and buys stacking of plastic boxes, takes them back to the garage, and systematically stores all the various sized nuts, bolts and screws in their own carefully identified drawer.

    If The Entrepreneur lives in the future, The Manager lives in the past.

    Where The Entrepreneur craves control, The Manager craves order.
    Where The Entrepreneur thrives on change, The Manager compulsively clings to the status quo.
    Where The Entrepreneur invariably sees the opportunities in events, The Manager invariably sees the problems.

    The Manager builds a house and then lives in it, forever.
    The Entrepreneur builds a house and the instant it's done, begins planning the next one.
    (add : Finish the house before looking to build the next one, depth before width)
    ...
    Without The Manager, there could be no business, no society.
    Without The Entrepreneur, there would be no innovation.

    The Technician

    The Technician is the doer.
    The Technician loves to tinker. Things are to be taken apart and put back together again.
    Things aren't supposed to be dreamed about, they're supposed to be done /!\

    If The Entrepreneur lives in the future and The Manager lives in the past, The Technician lives in the present. He loves the feel of things and the fact that things can get done.

    As long as The Technician is working, he is happy, but only on one thing at a time. He knows that two things can't get done simultaneously* ; only a fool would try.
    So he works steadily and is happiest when he is in control of the work flow."

    *Two important project can't get done simultaneously.

    When building a business, you are the 3, you will always be the 3 because you can only trust your work and vision.
    But you'll need to delegate the technician & manager part at some point (not fully, but a part) to be able to focus on the future.

    There's a small part but very important of this book that i like a lot, many point that are very important, recommended read.
