Practice and experience the many values of Solitude and Reflection. Take moments (15 minute walk during a lunch break, a 30 minute break on a park bench on the drive home to “detox” from work, 2 hours on a Saturday at a quiet coffee shop to journal and just be…) to be still, be quiet and reflect. Take a journal with blank pages and fill some with thoughts, pondering, questions, ideas, concerns, joys, fears and whatever else comes to mind. When our life isn’t filled with ‘noise’ and distractions (phones, to do lists, phones, expectations, books/magazines, etc.), we can see our true reflection. True actions, attitudes, emotions, abilities, leadership gaps, etc. True self-awareness.
Below is a list of books, periodicals, journals that we suggest you explore to gain an even richer experience from your CFO.University community.
