A thought to start the week: “creating the space vs. filling the space”.
Creating the Space vs. Filling the Space
How much do you create the space versus fill the space?
It seems our natural tendency is to want to fill space. And that comes from positive intentions: a desire to avoid wastage and make good use of what’s available to us.
But how often do we give meaningful thought to what we fill that space with? And how often do we challenge that autopilot and consider the benefits of creating space?
Reflect now: how many of our issues, stresses and pressures come from a lack of space: to work, to manoeuvre, to breathe, to think, to think anew. How many of the challenges of our staff come from the lack of space we afford them?
So a challenge for this coming week: how and where will you create the space?
