The Execution Trap and Making Space to Think
How do you have a “thought’ job without the time to “think”?
Do you have a role that requires thought leadership? How to design a solution; how to solve a customer’s problem; how to optimize your processes?
Sometimes things get to so busy, there’s no time to think — it’s just execute, execute, execute all day long (or in agile terminology — sprint, sprint, sprint, all day long).
There’s value in a little bit of under utilization or under employment. It gives you time to take a step back, perhaps read a book, and expand your perspective regularly.
Don’t get caught in the “execution” trap.
Read some blogs, a publication relative to your field; complete some digital trainings….
This is still “work” and there should be space to do it while you’re on the clock.
