Time for reflection


In a story about Turner Broadcasting and CEO Phil Kent in last week’s Business Week, Kent shared his three-part “CEO Manual”:

  1. Carve out time to think, not just react
  2. Sabbaticals give you useful perspective
  3. Don’t overschedule; leave time for colleagues

In smart organizations that focus on execution and results, time for reflection is still vital. Do that on a regular basis, and the “snap” decisions we’re all required to make on a daily basis will be far more informed and rooted in what’s most important.
