Listen to the audio version here.
The hum of lawn mowers around here tells me that we are past spring cleaning and on to summer action. New projects are launching, and every day the pace of business is accelerating.
Take time to reflect. Our recent series on failure was based on Larry Wilson’s quote, “I cannot fail; I can only learn and grow.” I would add, “You only learn and grow if you take time to reflect.”
So here’s my suggestion. Take your calendar, and a blank notepad and pen. Get out of the office, out of the house. Go where you will not be disturbed. Try the public library; try the back 40; Tim and Natalie in New Zealand will probably hit the beach!
Now, review each day and contemplate successes, failures and lessons. Keep a record of what you have learned. Then come by Small Biz Survival and add to our weekly Brag Basket. We’ll help you applaud what you’ve learned.
