The pace is so fast. Change is constant. Resources are tight. There is not enough time for all there is to do.
So we rush. From one meeting/project/event/person to the next.
We do not have time for:
Reflection (so we can improve on processes)
Debriefing (so we can transfer information and institutional knowledge)
Refining (so we can deliver better products/service/experiences)
Relationship building (so we can count on another transaction/sale/favor/gift)
Listening (so we can answer the right way the first time)
So we rush.
Advice: Take the time. Slow down. Connect meaningfully. Get more done.
