Regularly, take time to reflect on what has been happening in your life. Step back to work ON your life instead of IN it. See yourself as the C.E.O. of your own personal company, or as the captain of your own ship. Are you navigating the waves as well as you might?
Stepping back helps us see a bigger, more inclusive picture. Small events make more sense in the bigger scheme of things.
"Follow effective action with quiet reflection. From the quiet reflection will come even more effective action."
