This month, Jon’s article, Take Time to Make Time – The Best Two Minutes You’ll Ever Spend, is featured in the Denha & Associates, PLLC Blog.
When I go into companies, I always notice how everyone is rushing. They’re running a hundred miles an hour. They’re working on a project and before they have to report out, they’re racing into the room saying, “Who’s gonna do what?” There’s a lack of preparation, an absence of “Hey, let’s make a time to reflect and look at this from some other angles. Let’s prepare a little bit more. Let’s prioritize a bit.” But that, of course, takes time.
We all wish there were more than 24 hours in a day. We have so many ideas, so much to do … but perhaps the most important thing you can do each day is to take two minutes to think and do nothing. Think about the business, think about your staff, think about your next steps, and think about how to grow each of these.
So many times I hear, “What? I don’t have two minutes Jon, that’s the whole problem!”
