Be a lifeguard - get out of the water!

Today I spent time on - not in - my business.

Often we are like lifeguards who spend all their time in the water. The problem is , although we can be responsive, we can't see people drowning - we can't see the problems.

Take time out to:

1. Review what works well (Strengths)

2. Probe what doesn't work well (Weaknesses)

3. Think about what the future possibilities (Opportunity)

4. Consider what the future could bring (Threats)

But most importantly after taking time out - take action!
