[FLR] 3 Reasons Leaders Should Let Themselves Get Distracted | Friday Leadership Report

Happy Friday,

 

It is here. The final long weekend of the summer. 

 

Long weekends are great for many things, especially this…

 

…Distractions.

 

We can let ourselves explore, relax and pursue things without the almighty agenda telling us which meeting we need to go to next. Great leaders understand the value of going down a different path or pursuing new and interesting concepts and ideas.

TED Carl Honore: In Praise of Slowness
If you get stuck, get away from your desk. 
Take a walk, take a bath, go to sleep, make a pie, draw, listen to ­music, meditate, exercise; whatever you do, don’t just stick there scowling at the problem.” 

– Hilary Mantel
