HBR: Restore Yourself to Your Factory Default Settings

Over at the Harvard Business Review Blog, Peter Bregman discusses a great strategy to deals with frustration and clear your mind:

“When you unplug and wait for a minute, you restore yourself to your factory default settings, which for most of us tends to be generous, open-hearted, creative, connected, and hopeful. That makes us more likely to be effective when we plug back in.

In a meeting that’s going nowhere? Take a break. Making no headway on that proposal you need to write? Stand up and take a walk. Fighting with your kids? Give yourself a time-out. Unplug for a minute and breathe.”
