The Value of Nothing
When children are born premature, they're placed in incubators. When fields stop producing, farmers let them lay fallow When baseball players are in a slump, they're often given a day off
It's the same with innovators -- or should be.
They, too, need to incubate. They, too, need to lay fallow. They, too, need a day off.
You already know this. That's why choose to "sleep on it" before making a decision.
Pausing isn't procrastinating. It's an act of renewal -- a chance to relax and let your subconscious shine -- a phenomenon that's all-too-rare these days -- especially in organizations where everyone is running in circles.
Face it. Sometimes the best thing to do is nothing.

I often do nothing to help get my mind rolling. If I try to hard I stay stuck!
