Starting Thought: Taking Stock of Accomplishments and What's Left to Be Done

  
  
  
  
  
  

describe the imageWith Memorial Day just behind us, and a glorious summer in full swing, I’m reminded that we’re approaching the half-way point in the year. School’s almost out. We’ll be watching parades and fireworks before we know it, and that gigantic parrot kite we bought Avi at CostCo needs its maiden voyage.

It’s the perfect time to celebrate what we’ve accomplished so far this year, and take stock of what’s yet to be done. To share gratitude and appreciation with our teams and colleagues, and begin gearing up for a strong second half of the year.

This time of year also means strategic planning is beginning again for many of us (didn’t we just evolve our strategic plans?). How will you continue to improve your planning process this year? What other great minds can you engage to help you? How might some outside perspective be of value?

What are you grateful for, which you will share with your team, and what one or two steps will you take to make this year’s planning process even more effective?

The parrot kite makes me smile! I agree, taking stock and celebrating accomplishments is a great thing to do at this time of year. It is also important to readjust expectations as well. You mention school coming to an end - suddenly the kids are home and home life changes focus. Routines need to be adjusted - priorities as well. Setting goals for the summer is a great way keep expectations in check. Our first one is always "no sunburns" :-) Seriously, we only get so many summers with our kids. Enjoy the kite flying!

Eliz, I agree setting goals and adjusting routines are both great ways to prepare for the changes that come with the summer months. Thanks for sharing and enjoy time with your kids at home as well!
