One of the biggest adjustments in becoming a manager is realizing that managing your team is a full-time job. And then you have to get your own work done! Is it laughable when I suggest you must find time to vision and create?
Your skills and upward mobility can stagnate if time is not there for visioning and creativity. That is how your unique voice comes through and you can shine. Visioning and creativity also fuel you, countering the many energy drains you face as a manager. So how do you do it? Balance your life and how you use your time. Make finding time for your visioning and creativity a non- negotiable. As it rises in priority, the time will be there.
