Are you so busy with the day-to-day tasks of your life that you aren’t taking time to think about what you’re doing, or if you even enjoy doing it? For job seekers, the monotony of filling out applications, emailing resumes, and perfecting your interview skills can eventually take a toll on how you think about your life each day. The same is true for those new to the career world as they try to work their way up in a company or learn the ins and outs of their work environment.
According to former professional basketball player and motivational speaker Walter Bond, “We work so hard that we don’t have time to think. We don’t have time to use innovation and creativity…We are so busy ‘doing’ that we don’t leave time to think.”
If this sounds like you, don’t panic. Finding yourself so busy that you don’t take time to really think about what you’re doing is something that happens to almost everyone, and it can be reversed with a little effort.
In the first of a year-long series of motivational messages, Walter Bond discusses the importance of making time to stop and think in order to focus on where you are, where you’re going, and where you want to be.
