Here is a day in the life of a busy leader. She has routines that keep her work life in check (ex: waking up at the same, reading the news, checking off tasks) but no routines that foster her company’s strategy. 

As a result, she tends to work on items right in front of her versus the items that are the most important. And, she spends energy and time recording everything manually. Gross.

Where are the strategic items that will drive the organization further? 

Where is the time devoted to the company’s mission?

Many leaders and team members go through the motions every day at work, and then (maybe) dedicate a day or two to “developing strategy.” 

There are natural places for Nisha and her team to incorporate the company’s strategic focus. What impact could she make if THIS was her schedule instead:

6:00am Alarm goes off.
6:15 am Pours a cup of coffee and reads the news on her phone.
6:30 am Gets dressed for the day. 
7:09 am Checks emails to see if anything is “on fire.”
7:15 am Departs for work.
8:01 am Settles in at desk. Checks IMs for any juicy messages.
8:30 am Attends morning management stand-up meeting.
