But I do want to make more time for reflection. It's important, it's what makes your experiences and learning have a real impact on how you do stuff. What's the point of going on all those training courses and attending all those conferences if not to learn from them and apply what you have learned in places where it can make a real difference? (Don't say it's the cake).
So what I'm taking away from Thing 5 isn't so much a reflection on the 4 Things that have gone before (because I have already reached conclusions about those and in the case of Thing 3, have decided that I need to set aside some proper time to think and act, and I don't want to do that at 5am when I'm only awake because the house is too hot and my head feels like it might melt). It is more an intention to manage my time better and try to build in opportunities for myself to think about things properly - I'm sure I'd do a better job of my job if I had those opportunities.
