How much time is scheduled for thinking in your normal business day?
Do you have a regular time when you take the phone off the hook, avoid interruptions and think about business situations and problems or create plans?
Do you often worry about past, present and future business decisions?
This quotation from Harold B. Walker Think or Worry
might provide some motivation for you to include some time for reflection and thinking into your workday.
“Thinking works its way through problems to conclusions and decisions, worry leaves you in a state of tensely suspended animation” (H.B. Walker)
Get the subject out in the open, describe it, observe it, analyze it, understand it.
Think about it.
Create solutions or action plans to deal with the reality and stop worrying about it.
“You can think about your problems or you can worry about them and there is a vast difference between the two.” (H.B. Walker)
