About four years ago, I started doing twice-yearly retreats to reflect and work on my businesses. While I didn’t know it at the time, it turns out that Bill Gates has been doing what he calls “Think Weeks” for decades. As I looked around, I found that many CEO’s and other high performers have some process for stepping away from the daily routine in hopes of getting some rest, clarity, and supercharged motivation. During this episode, I’m talking about my process for designing a Think Week. These are the primary components:
- Put them on the calendar
- Get out of town
- Eliminate all non-essential decisions
- Develop an agenda
- Build in time for consultation

About Dr. Jeremy Sharp
I’m a licensed psychologist and Clinical Director at the Colorado Center for Assessment & Counseling, a private practice that I founded in 2009 and grew to include 12 licensed clinicians, three clinicians in training, and a full administrative staff. I earned my undergraduate degree in Experimental Psychology from the University of South Carolina before getting my Master’s and PhD in Counseling Psychology from Colorado State University. These days, I specialize in psychological and neuropsychological evaluation with kids and adolescents.
As the host of the Testing Psychologist Podcast, I provide private practice consulting for psychologists and other mental health professionals who want to start or grow psychological testing services in their practices. I live in Fort Collins, Colorado with my wife (also a therapist) and two young kids.
