“The quality of your thinking
determines the quality of your life.”
– A.R. Bernard.
I was hosting a company retreat for a client at the end of last week and one of the questions I asked them was this:
What is the one thing you’d like to get better at over the next 12 months?
One of the senior managers said they wanted to ‘have more time to think.’
What they meant was more time to raise the quality of their thinking, to be more strategic, to help them ‘see around corners’, to be more creative.
Most people in my experience think too much, or are stuck in loops of the same patterns of thought. But there is a growing awareness that the above quote is a universal truth.
So a logical question then should be “How do you improve the quality of your thinking and by extension that of the people around you?”
Answering that question has been my obsession over the last 20+ years and the starting point is to realise the importance of your state of mind and also that we are not our thinking.
So for you:
- What’s the one thing you’d like to do more or or get better at over the next 12 months?
- Why that one? What difference will it make to you?
- What’s a step you can take this week to move in that direction?
