'Hurry Up and Slow Down' - WIN- What's Important Now
April 18, 2017
Hosted by Jeff Smith
It seems like we are surrounded by the need for speed. We want it and we want it now. Speed seems to be reinforced at every turn. We want that red traffic light to turn green, now, (What are they waiting for?) We want business results to come fast, (especially in Q1) and without much hassle. We want everything from our computers to our toasters to run fast, fast, fast. As we look at the world around us, we see people moving at a frantic pace. With smart phones and email everywhere, it seems as if all of us are addicted to "instant gratification" and find it hard to slow down or wait for anything. Maybe it's time to slow down a little. We tend to see more details when we slow down and really look at our surroundings, including relationships. If you can identify with “living at the speed of life” you won’t want to miss the next Voltcast when Voltage CEO, Jeff Smith and Principal Consultant Lee Hubert how to WIN the human race by focusing on “What’s Important Now” practical tips.
