I was out kayaking the other day on a lake and decided to just stop in the middle and spend some time reading. Turns out i wasn’t the only one who had the same idea :). It was one of those rare moments to be able to seperate myself from the day to day activities and constant ‘movement’ and sit still.
It often strikes me that often on projects we are so focused on the work that we forget to lift ourselves up and out of the day to day tasks and just think. When i remove myself from the work environment and give myself a few moments to breath it helps me remember the important little things about a project that need to get done. I often come up with resolutions to problems by clearing my head.
