It’s still the same website but maybe there are some new pictures, new colors or even text has been moved around a bit. There might even be some fresh new content. I know a few websites that even tell you to “hit refresh to see our latest numbers and information”.
Either way, you know after you hit refresh…things are a little different.
Towards the end of June, I was feeling a little stuck. So I, hit refresh. I took the month of July as a time to disconnect from the media and social media worlds. No cable news or reality shows. No Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Not even any Hip Hop music for 30 days. I call it a 30 Mental Fast.
Since 2013, I have used this 30 Mental Fast as a chance to update my business and personal life. It’s my mid-year opportunity to clarify and refocus on what’s important. It’s also an opportunity for me to create something new. It was wonderful.
I am encouraging you to take the time to “hit refresh” on your business and personal life if you haven’t done so. Here are three benefits of hitting refresh.
- Reflective Thinking – We should always take the time to look at what we are doing each day. We should examine our processes and routines to see if they still work for the current world. There is a chance we might be using old thinking to address new challenges. If you need to change something, then change it.
- Reordered Priorities – We all should continually examine what’s important in our lives. There are some things that have worked their way at the top of our priority list, while others have fallen to the bottom. Are these current priorities in your long-term best interest? Why or why not? If you need to reorder your priorities, then do it.
- Reconnected Passion – Are you doing what matters to you or are you doing what matters to other people. There are times when we lose sight of what and who we truly care about. Taking the time to reconnect to your passion, will help you to engage more deeply with the right things and right people. If you have lost your passion, it’s time to hit refresh.
I hope you take the opportunity to “hit refresh” in your life. If you have, I would love to hear what you are doing differently now. What’s your new focus?
If you haven’t hit refresh (or don’t plan to), I would love to know what’s holding you back?
Drop me a comment on my Facebook Page.
PS- I want to tell you that soon I will be hitting refresh on my brand. Over the last couple of months, I have been developing some great new content to help you be a better leader and have a greater impact in the lives of those you lead. I will share more later.
