"Deep thought is usually the first thing to go in any high-pressure, high-stakes organizational culture. We rush from fire to fire, decision to decision; any downtime is wasted time. But those who do make time to reflect—Albert Einstein, Satya Nadella, Indra Nooyi and Jeff Weiner among them—know firsthand that reflection is crucial to the emotional reliability, motivation, and commitment vital for leading others. And that’s before we even get to the clarity and insight it brings to strategic thinking, innovation, and other business-critical needs.
It’s a similar story for energy. Defined in physics as the capacity to work, we also think of it as being tightly tied to our ability to respond to challenges. By becoming more aware and intentional, energy can be systematically expanded, maintained, and renewed—a generative loop that helps us remain more resilient to change and challenge." - NOBL Newsletter
