One Uncommon Practice Entrepreneurs Often Miss in Business

Do you have the patience to wait until your mud settles and the water is clear? – Lao Tzu

Entering a new market, starting a new product line, or stepping up a level in leadership often means long days and sleepless nights.

It takes research, creative action, planning, new processes, behavioral change. So much activity! All valid, all necessary.

When we grow into a new venture it often feels awkward. Maybe even disturbing. There is a certain mental muscle that maximizes our success: Stillness.

In our hurry, hurry world, stillness is a secret weapon. There we see; we hear; we know. We discover an important detail, have an aha about the order of the rollout, freshen our confidence.

I just finished a quarterly “pause” with the MIS Solutions leadership team. Looking out over a serene lake, we spent time envisioning their 3-year Picture™ and clarified 90-day priorities.

It takes courage to take a whole team away from the business for a day.

This team described the results of their time together, this time of being still and listening: “it brought cohesive alignment”; “we connected in a way that gave us more desire to help each other”; “we have clearer messaging about expectations that is going to lead to more achievement and efficiency.”

Clarity Break™ is another tool we advocate in EOS®. The faster we’re going, the more we need this gift of stopping to take a breath. It helps to have a structure, and an encouraging guide.

If this resonates, I’d love to help!
