Take A Break

It is important to take frequent breaks to balance your stress to recovery ratio. Go for a short walk and get some fresh air, relax and do something completely different for a few minutes every two hours, especially when working on a difficult task. You will be able to approach your challenges with renewed vigour when you do. What are your recovery rituals? Any new ones you would like to establish?

Incremental Improvement

I once read about a swimmer who was practicing for the next Olympic Games. His task was to improve his personal best with a couple of seconds. It was a huge undertaking. The trick was to break the goal down into smaller chunks. He only had to improve his personal best with two 1/100 seconds each week. Surely he could accomplish that! So it is with continual personal improvement; you may not have to go that extra mile, when an inch every day will do just fine!

e=mc [square]

In physics Einstein’s revolutionary equation e=mc2 opened entirely new doors in the fields of nuclear and quantum physics. It describes how energy and mass can be converted through the multiplier of a powerful constant, creating an enormous lever when multiplied with itself. Imagine if we could find an equally dynamic equation to describe the reality of business life. I believe we can! Success = time x ideas x relationships2.
