Have you ever felt so overwhelmed with work that you’ve caught yourself rushing through project after project?
You scramble to answer a phone call while you’re checking your overloaded email inbox in the midst of completing an overdue report. You push off your workout to make more time for another report that just hit your desk and by the time you look up from your desk to go home, it’s already dark outside.
It’s time for a pause.
If you’re a business leader, the majority of the tasks you’re working on WILL impact someone’s life. If that’s the case, take a deep breath before moving forward.
Remind yourself that it’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey.
You’ve accomplished so much already in the first few months of the year. Have you celebrated these achievements with your spouse, your team, and yourself?
Slow down and enjoy the ride! And know that you’re not the only one on this train. Encourage the people your leading to take a momentary pause as well. The people who follow you have their sensors on overload when it comes to feeding off your vibe. When they see you rush through your work, they will rush through their work.
Oftentimes the difference between a rock star performance and simply average work, is just ONE extra step.
Today, pause and reflect on the task at hand. Put your best foot forward in everything you do. If you can’t give it your best – is it worth doing at all?
