Daily Walking Reflection I don’t make New Year’s Resolutions because they don’t offer an opportunity for reflection. And, if I’m being honest,  I don’t stick to them.  For over thirty years, I have integrated “reflection rituals” in my professional work on a daily, weekly, quarterly, and annually basis.  For example, I have a daily reflection ritual of walking a few miles a day to think away from screens. Rituals can boost our personal productivity because they allow us to focus and reach our goals without distraction. Rituals can also be used by teams in the workplace to impro ..read more

Rituals can also be used by professionals to boost personal productivity because rituals capitalize on our brains’ ability to direct our behavior on autopilot, allowing us to reach our goals even when we are distracted or preoccupied with other things.
