The Rewards of Taking an Hour Out

Posted by:

When did you last take some time out of your day to do some quality thinking?

I don’t mean day dreaming.  I mean thinking about your vision for the business, how you are going to achieve your goals and what else could you do to accelerate your future.

All of my clients take a day out every 90 days to reflect and build a plan for the next quarter so they are really focussed on what they need to do.

Schedule an hour in your diary next week and find somewhere quiet in the Hampshire countryside (assuming it is not raining of course) that conveniently surrounds us and just think about your business.

Switch off the phone.  Do a SWOT analysis – what are your Strengths and Weaknesses; what Opportunities and Threats exist for your business.

Then, formulate some actions to take back into the workplace.

I would happily bet that even an hour spent like that will give you some clarity of thought and some new ideas…then imagine what a day a quarter could do for you?
