The best leaders take time to reflect. One of the easiest ways to do this is to keep a journal. Set aside some time each day, preferably the same time each day, and find a quiet space where you won’t be interrupted. Keep that time carefully guarded on your calendar as an appointment with yourself. Then write whatever comes to mind — a journal’s blank pages invite you to hold an honest conversation with yourself. Give yourself permission to follow your stream of consciousness without judging, censoring, or trying to direct where your thoughts might take you. And don’t share your journal with anyone else; your reflections are yours. They bring you what all the world’s experts, advisers, and executive coaches combined can’t offer you: your own unique perspective.
