During that period, in 2013, I noticed that the world was changing and saw newer generations entering our workforce - most of them with a totally different mindset. A way of thinking that’s more creative, more activistic, and more cross-functional - across borders. Inspiring!
This has helped me realize that this new mindset, combined with new technologies and a potentially global market, it is much more important to focus on your (company) compass. Why are you heading in that direction? And do you have the flexibility to respond to rapid change, if necessary? Zooming out every now and then - taking some time physically away from your business - can unlock new ideas and insights that help you and your business move forward.
Taking this time for myself has moved me to take over CoworkParadise.
