Make Time to Take a Break to be a Better Leader

If you are the type who hits the ground running and never stops until you collapse at the end of the day, here is some important advice—make time to take a break!

Non-stop action is not healthy, nor is it as productive as if you were to take a moment to consider which direction you are running in, why, and if you might shift your route to be more effective. All of us should plan at a minimum just a few minutes at the beginning and end of each day to evaluate our actions, reflect upon them and adjust to what may be a better approach.

Think about it from a situational leadership perspective. A quick analysis of how to handle a particular situation might be correct. But a closer look after a short break will either confirm your approach or suggest a better way. Isn’t the break worth it? You get to rest for a moment as well as to learn about what works and what doesn’t.

This will save you time and effort in the long run.  Go slow to go fast.
