“Don’t just do something!  Stand there!”

–     Dick Heston (1933 – 2002), my dad, a wise man

Sometimes we’re too active.

A “pit stop” is a good way to get fuel, new tires and better traction for a race car driver.  It’s a good way for us business types to get the same things.

Set aside time each day to:

Plan — to make sure that your activities for the day match the desired outcomes.

Ideate — ideas are the currency of difference makers.  Look at things from a different angle and ask, “What if I…” or “What if I didn’t….?”

Think — too often we’re just acting, or worse, reacting.  Taking a few deep breaths and “standing there,” as Dad would say, gives us time to connect our brains with our bodies, and that’s a worthwhile pursuit.

Head to the PITs once a day, and see if it makes as much of a difference for you as it does for me…
