“The vacation we often need is from our own mind.”—Jack Adam Weber
The Relationship Between Sunsets and Leading with Speed
We sat on a Cape Cod beach for hours last Friday night. I found myself completely relaxed enjoying a marvelous sunset.
Driving back home I found my thoughts returning to the work I am doing with various clients. My subconscious must have been busy as I found 20 new ideas had emerged about how to help my clients go faster to the value they desire.
The need for speed in our marketplace is a real pressure that we all face as leaders. Often people tell me that the pressure is so much that they feel the need to work evenings and weekends.
I find that doing those long hours is periodically useful. However, the secret ingredient to the fastest speed to value is clear thinking that fuels the work.
Take the time to watch a sunrise or sunset. Your brain will reward you.
Yours in the calm pursuit of excellence,Alan Willett
