The most underrated strategy in leadership has to be rest. In our connected society we're expected to do more an more each day. There's always that voice in the back of our heads pointing out the things we could be doing. This rhythm chokes out our ability to rest.
As humans we are designed to require rest. As leaders it's in times of rest that we'll be able to take real strides forward. None of the huge changes that have shaped my business have come from my task list. All of them have come when I took time to rest and relax. It's in the quiet that our future success is shaped. If we are content to ignore the need for quiet, then we are also hampering our future success.
