I don’t know about you, but the summer sunshine and weather always encourage me to refresh. I find myself making time for a longer stroll to work. On some mornings, I even hit the snooze button three times instead of my usual two. Work has not stopped, but the summer season seems to make my world more relaxed.
Summer is one of the best times for me to hit the “refresh” button. I find myself creating moments for refreshment and reflection. It can be difficult, at times. There is so much going on with Ani Marketing Service each day, it seems like our team is constantly on the move. But when I am purposeful about hitting my “refresh” button, I am able to use the extra moments for some reflection. As a successful company, AMS spends a good portion of our time reflecting on our best practices for future implementation. We created a hefty amount of strategies and protocols during the fall, winter and spring months with regard to social media and more. Now is the time to think about what went well and what did not. It is time to think about why things went well and why things did not. Now is the time to hit refresh so that we can reflect.
This might seem like an obvious suggestion, but you would be surprised at how many people and companies fail to spend purposeful time reflecting. Friedrich Nietzsche once said, “All truly great thoughts are conceived while walking.” While I think that your time reflecting should be spent in whatever space you choose, the sentiment remains the same. During these breezy summer days, set aside 20-30 minutes a day to think about the experiences you or your company faced during the past few months. You might be surprised to see what you discover in your thoughts!
