Leaders Need to Slow Down to Speed Up

Nov 05, 2020

Do you want to achieve more in less time?

Do you want to outwit the competition?

Do you want to get more done at work and still have the energy for your family?

YOU need to SLOW DOWN!!!

But what exactly does this mean?

The classical Greek philosopher Aristotle said: ‘Nature requires us not only to be able to work well, but also to idle well.’ Constantly pushing ourselves to achieve against all the odds offers no respite for reflection. We need downtime to allow insight to flower.

Deliberately slowing down requires you to actually schedule time to slow down.

Slowing down may take several forms but the most important thing is to be deliberate about it and schedule time to slow down. Slowing down can/should involve some of the following:

  • Better quality and more sleep.
  • Mindfullness
  • Meditation
  • Light exercise like yoga, cycling, etc
  • Leadership Self Assessment

The Silva Meditation Method is one of the most effective and has been around for many years. Check it out here: https://mval.li/?a=2800&c=2968&p=r&s1=
