    in the way of getting things done

    What does the phrase 'in the way of doing something' mean the following sentence? Is it 'to stand in the way' or 'to be about to do something'?

    Since 'lions' are task-oriented, they’ll be impatient, if you’re in the way of getting things done.

    If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)
