It’s easy to wake up, immediately grab your phone and jump right into the ocean of emails and responsibilities of the day.
I’m not a morning person so once I do crack open my eyes time is of the essence to get going, and catch up to the rest of the world. But on the days that I do jump into the ocean without taking a second to put on the right gear I feel the difference. Yes, I’m still swimming but I get tired faster and have to take more breaks to wipe my eyes from the salt. Whereas if I took the time to put on my mask, and bring a noodle I would be able to swim longer.
The same way we plug in our phones to get the juice it needs to operate at high speed, sometimes we need to unplug and slow down to operate and execute at our highest level. So after years of running my own company and observing the habits of women in powerful positions across the board, I discovered these three simple ways to stay grounded as my schedule and my career continues to climb.
