As things shift and change in our world and recession looms, it’s more important than ever to pay close attention to your inner and outer worlds as a leader. When things are going smoothly, it’s easy to lay back and enjoy going with the flow. When things get rocky, it’s easy to get anxious and reactive. That anxiety and reactivity leads to pushing harder instead of focusing on steady improvement and can drive you right off the cliff. Instead, take a breath, look at where you were yesterday and focus on being just a little better today.
