A key characteristic of a leader is dedicating time to reflecting on their values, mission and the short and long term objectives they need to set.
Reflection is scalable - you can target it to something as small as a single meeting or moment in time or as large as your personal mission in life or 10 year career plan. All you need is a simple framework to help you be more intentional and extract richer learning from your experiences, starting with just one minute a day.
How we spend our time is the single best indicator of what is really important to us. Time is the one asset that is never recoverable. If our time is wisely invested, it can pay returns for years. Make sure that you calendar your plans, meetings, activities as a way to keep your commitments to yourself and to others and follow through on your promises.
