In these unprecedented times …

In these uncertain times …

In these unsettling times …

Things may never go back to normal …

We get it. Enough already. Please stop it commercials. Time to move on. Time to move forward.

Let’s do just that.

If you worked from home over the last 6-8 weeks you may have been gifted an extra 10 hours each week (assuming a 30-minute commute each way).

What did you do with this time? Sleep? Start some good habits? Adopt some bad habits?

Whatever you did, we’re about to take those 10 hours away and ramp back into real-world speed at an either breakneck pace or slowly over the next few months.

One thing is for certain; You get to decide what it looks like.

At times like these, it’s good to be intentional about what you learned about yourself, your family, your business, and more.

At Acumen monthly council meetings, we look back over the month intentionally in what we call a battle assessment. Where were you? What happened – good and bad? Who needs recognition? And so on. It’s a time to look behind you and look ahead and reset and plan.

This month, there’s an extra oomph to the assessment as all our lives changed in some way. So, here’s your chance to take some intentional time and assess your battle.

Reflection can be hard if you try to make it up, so here’s a document to prompt and guide your reflection.

You can share this with your team or family and discuss it.

Teaser: Reflection is not only about the past but also the future. The last question might be the question of the future you need to be asking for your business.
