What is one habit that has helped you succeed?

There’s a saying that “education without implementation is just entertainment,” and boy, do I love education for entertainment. As a leader I have to take the incredible barrage of input: sales data, problems agents and staff are having, industry news, macroeconomic information, etc. and synthesize that into future-focused strategy and practical plans. To help with turning the education/entertainment “input” into revenue generating activity, I take “clarity breaks” once a week. It’s a date with a blank piece of paper, a sharp pencil and an overflowing brain from the week’s input. I output ideas, thoughts, draw process plans, write lists, problem solve and create ideal roadmaps, with no distractions. It’s the best way to drag myself out of the day-to-day firefighting and put all of the input to good use for the future plans of the company. We can’t lead teams without vision. We can’t “see” unless we get alone with our thoughts and let free-flowing creative innovation guide us.
