Hey Fletch … I have all Thursday called #NMT (No Meeting Thursday) and set it aside to do just that. I only do strategic planning. I don’t do any other self work or meet with leaders. Thoughts on that?

DRF—The best leadership coaches around the country recommend ‘think time.’ The tyranny of the urgent is always with us. 

Dwight Eisenhower said: “I have two kinds of problems, the urgent and the important. The urgent are not important, and the important are never urgent.” Follow the thinking of a President of the United States. Give yourself sufficient space to focus on important issues.

If you can devote an entire Thursday to ‘Think Time,’ that is fantastic. Your staff may not like it because you will come in on Friday with so many ideas and things to do. Humor, trace.
