One of the ways I recharge is by spending time in my garden. Digging in the earth and tending plants helps my busy brain slow down and be more present, so I rarely listen to anything other than the birds.
This past weekend however, I listened to podcasts while I worked. Mara and I are focused on redesigning APEx (you can learn more here), and there is a lot to learn about building and managing an elite online community experience. So… I listened while I dug.
I continually encourage you to find quiet time and to reflect, but I am not being hypocritical. The critical point is that I made an intentional decision to listen.
This is the key.
If we can just become more intentional, each day, with each decision, then we can become better leaders. We don’t always need to choose the best or healthiest choice; we just need to make an intentional choice!
So, what are you choosing to do today? I’m going to eat ice cream 🤣
