How to Be an Effective Leader From Home During Quarantine
Pastor Craig Groeschel learned some key lessons while being locked up for 14 days completely alone, as he had to self-quarantine after being exposed to someone who tested positive for COVID-19. He says that in order for him to remain focused and productive as a leader, it's very important to keep a consistent routine at home. That means going to bed and waking up at the normal time, even when you're not going anywhere. Regular exercise is important, too.
"What I would recommend you do is that you take a shower, get dressed, wear some clothes that make you say, 'This is going to be a good day,'" Groeschel says. "In my mind, it's really hard to be unshaven, wearing a baseball cap, wearing shorts and a tank top, telling myself I'm an effective leader. ...
"I'm trying to trigger those pathways in my brain that say, 'I'm an effective leader. I'm going to be productive today. I'm going to get a lot done.' I would suggest to you, set three work goals. Whatever those priorities are, make sure that you do them. Do them first. ... Listen to a podcast, read a good book, stretch your mind."
