[FLR] | Why Leaders Spend 10 Minutes A Day Thinking

April 21, 2017 | The “Thought” Edition

 

Happy Friday!

 

Let’s face it, as a leader you are busy. You are being pulled in multiple directions and you have all of the responsibilities and pressures that come along with this. The one thing you really could benefit from is more time.

 

I have the solution.

 

It’s the George Schultz principle. George was Secretary of State under Ronald Reagan, and he had one of the most demanding jobs in the world. He would book 1 hour in his schedule to think; he instructed his staff to accept calls from only two people in that hour. The President, or George’s wife.

 

Can you put aside 1 hour to think this next week, it will not only make you a better leader but will also multiply your productivity and create valuable time for you.
