Our reader poll today asks: How well do you take care of your own physical well-being?
– Very well — I’m a picture of fitness and healthy living: 9.15%
– Well — I invest time and energy in it but could do more: 51.3%
– Not well — my habits aren’t nearly what they should be: 31.52%
– Poorly — I do a miserable job of caring for my well-being: 8.03%
You can’t lead if you’re dead. Would you ever run your business without knowing your key metrics? Or without maintaining your equipment? Of course not. And I’m sure you invest ample time and energy into those activities and ensure appropriate time is carved out for them. You need to treat your body as well as you treat your business. You can take some pretty easy steps every day to do just that – carving out time, knowing your metrics, etc. If you’re not taking care of yourself, you’re not taking care of your team.
