I am on a soap box these days about the effect of no thinking time. So today I come to you with a simple way to add more time into your day:
- Make all 1 hour meeting 40 minutes.
- Make all 30 minute meeting stand-up.
If you do this (at least in the meetings you have control over!) you will buy yourself at least a few extra chunks of time you can set aside for thinking. Shut your door, turn off your phone, send your computer to sleep and that’s it…contemplate a problem, noodle over the future, consider the consequences, ruminate over a decision.
I double dare you to try this…You and your business will be better off because of it.
