I got sent a copy of an article from Forbes about different ways to conquer leadership pressure.  As I'm moving into a new leadership position and because I have the tendency to take on way too much at the best of times I thought this was good to reflect on:
Create Whitespace: The best way to maintain focus is to make sure you’ve baked-in some whitespace into EVERY day. Any rubber band stretched too tightly will eventually snap – there are no exceptions to this rule. Leaders who don’t create time for quality thought and planning end-up taking unnecessary short cuts and risks. They let pressure force them into making bad decisions that a little whitespace could have prevented.
I always thought it was balance that I needed.  Now I'm thinking it could be whitespace.
