TV. Books. Blogs. E-mail. RSS. Podcasts. YouTube. Twitter. Instant messaging. Facebook.

These are a sample of inputs that you expose your mind on a daily basis. With so many many sources of unlimited information flow it's so easy to get overloaded with information to process. Technology breakthroughs and the Globalization phenomenon made Information Overload one of the top issues today's executive face.

But it gets worse than that. Besides getting a severe case of "information overload", you're so busy processing new information that you don't have time to think for yourself. You don't have time to make your own opinions. You don't have time to set a new vision for the future.

Solitude can the most important habits that you can choose to embrace.

Solitude gives you a time and a place where you can process all the things that you exposed your mind to, turn information into knowledge and see new paths to walk. New products to launch. New solutions to old problems.

Consider this:
  • Just because you have access to information, it doesn't mean that you should access it in the first place.
  • Exposing yourself to all information channels it's your choice! You still have the power to filter them.
  • You need time to hear yourself! How can you expect to do this with everybody screaming for your attention?
Today's business world is more competitive than ever. Now is the time to make yourself stand out from the crowd or become irrelevant. To do this you need to understand who you are, whose you are and what you stand for. The only way you can do this is if you choose to make solitude one of your habits as a leader.

The final choice is up to you.

And early in the morning, while it was still dark, he [Jesus] rose up and went outside and left for a lonely place, and there he began praying. - Mark 1:35
