Give yourself time to think

time to thinkHave you ever found yourself running so hard and so fast through all the stuff that shows up on your desk that you wonder if you will EVER have time to just think?

Well, you won’t – at least not unless you schedule that time. And it should be a regular thing on your schedule.

Get up, get out, go somewhere else.

Give your brain a chance to work!
