Cathy Ackermann: Time off can help keep things in perspective

 

“I believe that one of the missing ingredients of true business success is the ability to maintain a true sense of perspective. It is way too easy to become consumed by the “problem of the hour,” winning the next piece of new business or managing that troublesome employee. When we are “down in the weeds,” we tend to elevate the importance of challenges that are not actually make-or-break issues at all, but rather are just ordinary business situations that have to be dealt with.

When you look at corporate CEOs who have been able to accomplish true industry leadership, I think that a trait that sets them apart is their ability to rise above the day-to-day tasks of running their businesses and to keep their minds uncluttered enough to think new thoughts about how their businesses can achieve breakthrough success.”
