Stepping Back

Thursday, September 30th, 2010

Leading is a demanding task. There is a quote by Leonardo da Vinci that addresses the need to step back at times:

Every once and a while, go away and take a relaxing break, and then when you come back to your work, your judgment will be better—because remaining constantly at work will hinder your power of judgment. Move some distance away, because then your work will appear smaller, and more of it can be taken in at a glance, and any lack of harmony or proportion… will be more effortlessly seen.

Stepping back can help you refine and improve your perspective and be a better leader

In a recent post, Daily Om asked, are you fighting your own gifts? The post said that humans have a tendency to fight against using our natural gifts – ignoring the call of our inborn abilities.

Are you fighting them or putting them to good use?

Imagine

Sunday, September 12th, 2010

Your imagination can be a powerful tool. How often do you give yourself time to imagine? In the next week, take time each day to imagine. Take 10 minutes aside, eliminate any distractions, pick a subject to muse on and let your imagination free. If mind chatter takes over, let it pass through and go back to imagining.  Anything goes. After each imagining, take some notes. See if, by the end of the week, your imagination has taken you in new directions. Follow up on your imaginings and make them real. Have fun!
