columnist, Chris Musselwhite advises readers to, “take time out to learn from every experience and apply that learning in the future — and in your business.”
Human beings are natural problem solvers. We start looking for things to change as soon as we identify a problem. Often labeled as “drive” or “initiative,” this tendency is applauded in many cultures. It’s exactly this tendency that makes taking time to reflect so necessary.
Without taking this time out, we often find ourselves elbow-deep in solutions before we realize we’re working on the wrong problem. Taking time out to reflect first can help to ensure that time; effort and money aren’t wasted in the long run.
