I will plan the week, make it a point to schedule time with my family & friends & activities that would help me recharge. Taking stock of activities that are not really enhancing my career or personal life and minimizing the time I spend on them. Offer to do task that I enjoy or that I am planning to do anyway. Allocate sufficient time for exercise when I have a jam-packed schedule "I feel like my head is clearer and I've had a little time to myself." I will take 10 or 15 minutes to do something that will recharge my battery.
Growth Strategy:
Accept new challenges. I do not stop listening, teaching, mentoring and read lot. I find that mentoring helps keep me on top of my game. I continue to provide my clients with what I say I can provide, without any exaggeration or ego. Continue to bring in self-awareness, along with the team's feeling & dynamics. Keeps me accountable, helps me make sure I practice what I preach to those that I mentor, gives me confidence that others look up to me, helps me realize that I know quite a bit about business, helps improve my leadership skills, makes me feel happy to see other grow and progress, and I finally that I am building the next generation of mentors and helpers.

Other Thoughts:
Professional behaviors are simple. What's not simple is the consistent application of them. Being a true professional takes thought and effort. But, once you are truly professional you can go just about anywhere. The skills are universal, and they are rare. True professionals stand out from the crowd and grow rewarding and satisfying careers. And the customers of the world know when one is at work.
Welcome to the market driven world. A world in which there is indeed only one filter through which every action is viewed and perceived – the market impact filter. Market forces and economic considerations play a dominant role in influencing the new employment arrangement. Market Orientation: It includes strategies, values & actions are practiced or implemented in the company. The pressure on quality product and reduced cost bearing the employer – employee relationship. Organisation says – you give me your loyalty I will take care of your long-term interest. Loyalty for employee meant – tenure, pride and referral, opportunity for organizational shortcomings, delayed gratification and consistent contribution despite constraints.

Understand the new employment arrangement and more importantly what is driving the change and what the consequences of the change are especially on engaging employee. Both employer and employee are going through testing times. Severe competition, not just in one industry, but even across categories is leading to movement of people cross industries. Employers are finding hard to retain quality people. Organizations battle with attrition, employees too. Empowerment and a system of distribute leadership would ensure growth without break down. Organizations have to take on greater responsibility in society building, which creates a sense of belonging among one’s workforce.
