I’ve learned the most important lessons about my business not while working, but by reflecting on my work on long walks.

Walking is a new habit I’ve formed and it has helped me be more creative, have a more level mood, better understand the world around me, and, overall, think more clearly.

Walking may not be the most in vogue or appealing activity, but it’s effective. Walking makes you a crisper thinker and communicator.

Once you start a long walk, you feel your mind go into an almost surreal state of creativity. Ideas just start flowing. The signs and sounds around you make you think.

The way you think on a walk can easily change your outlook on the day (or potentially your entire life).

By being more present, which is definitely something that happens during and after a long walk, you’ll have better thoughts.
