How do you change the world when you are out of fresh ideas? Where do you get your inspiration? As leaders, many times we get so caught up in day to day activity that we do not take the time to dream. We forget to be innovative, fresh, and find excitement in what we do.
It is important to dream even when you don’t think you have the time. Put time on your calendar, make an appointment with yourself for creative time. Take the time to retreat and don’t feel bad about it. The only way to take your company or your position to the next level is to take the time to plan, think, reflect, and dream.
Make and appointment with yourself and respect that appointment as if it were with the most important person in your life. It could be the difference between that promotion or staying status quo. Stay up with the competition and even surpass them by making this one simple appointment. Reaching the top is a process. It has to happen everyday! What books are you reading, who is your mentor, who are you listening to for growth?
Getting fresh ideas and renewed energy takes time that you have to make for yourself. Day to day operations can be draining. Care for yourself and let your creative juices flowing! Let me know how you plan to renew!
