Don't Forget the Basics - Breathing

Tomorrow I have the privilege of taking my entire PCMA membership team off-site for an entire day of planning. I say privledge because when was the last time you just detached yourself from your computer/phone and thought about stuff, planned instead of reacted?

If you had a year similar to people I know, you were asked to do more, with less...nose to the grindstone with barely enough time to come up for air. For a lot of us that strategy worked last year to a large extent, but that is no way to consistently operate a business/department. It just doesn't work - it will burn out your team members (and you).

Tomorrow is the time for my team to take a deep cleansing breath of fresh air!

I'm so curious to know what you are doing to plan for the year - knowing we need to keep our focus strong, but also be forward looking/thinking. Please share your thoughts with me so we can learn from each other.
