You take your car in for regular maintenance so you don’t have a catastrophic breakdown. How much self-maintenance do you do for yourself – or your company? Or do you wait until there’s a crisis to react and pump in loads of resources you can’t afford to get yourself going again?
For an organization, self-maintenance is about ongoing development and learning, and team development. The more you invest in this consistently, the more effective you’ll be in the long run.
On an individual basis, this means physical exercise, learning, mindfulness and leisure time through vacation and – God forbid! – fun. You actually are more efficient – and more successful – professionally if you do this, as you’ll discover in this week’s vlog.
