Today has been a day of reflection, thought and planning for me. It’s a day we all need sometimes in our businesses – and indeed our lives. But it isn’t a day we often take.
We can easily forget to take a step back. We get so wound into our goals and our to-do list that we never come up for air. We do this with our major projects, too, especially with a book.
Strangely, taking a step back can actually move you forward much faster. I[m sure you’ve experienced the ‘eureka’ moment that comes when you are relaxed and not trying to think of a solution to a problem you’re experiencing. It’s the same with a book. Taking time off can bring perspective, time to let your thoughts settle and space for issues to resolve themselves without you having to bang your head against a wall.
So, the next time you or your book are stuck, stop. Take a break, take a step back and enjoy the progress that happens as a result.
