The fifteen minutes that will change your business
Take fifteen minutes each day to quiet the noise and THINK about your business. Start today. Grab a pen, some paper, and a chair. Turn off the tv, ipod, laptop, and phone. Don’t text, tweet, chat, or talk for fifteen minutes. Think.
This simple (but not always easy) exercise will help you get clarity for where you are and what is next for your business. People often underestimate the power of sustained thought. Instead of using google as a magic 8 ball or referring to your favorite guru’s blog, just take your pen and paper and write down the thoughts that come to you. Don’t filter, write.
If you do this daily, you will discover new direction and clear paths to your objectives. You will find solutions to problems your company faces. Knowledge of where to spend your time and resources to get the maximum affect will emerge.
You will change your business.
I know, you may be thinking this is some hokey bologna, but understand it is simply taking away constraints. I love being plugged-in and staying ultra productive as much as the next person, but those can become hindrances to revelation and ideas trying to surface.
Trust me. Give it a week and come back here and comment about your experience, what you’ve learned, and its impact.
What do you say, are you with me?
