I’ve been working for a few days on a draft of an introduction to strategic planning for 2010. I felt self-inflicted pressure to get it finished today.
My son got up early this morning and wanted to make adventure badges and wanted to know what adventures we were going to do today.
Didn’t you know you did adventures? Ooooh, yes. Hearty adventures.
Anyway, that’s what we’ve been doing. Later we’re going to pick up treats for his teachers and therapists and make cards for them, too. And, just maybe, play a little pinball.
So, in lieu of strategic planning, I’ll point you toward a collection of 37 inspirational videos Jonathan Fields put together over at his site – some are rather famous, some aren’t, some feature language you may not like, most don’t. Mileage varies. You’ve been warned.
Yesterday, my son told me there would be no tickling in the house for one day. I had been warned. These things matter.
Have you learned to separate the truly important from the merely urgent?
My favorite of the 37 from Jonathan’s blog was this one featuring people you and I have never met.
What moves you? What makes you put down your pencil? What reminds you why you pick the pencil back up?
Back to the seriously silly business of adventures. Things are looking Up. Hope they are for you as well.
UPDATE: I continue to marvel a bit at the boy and his resilience in the comments.
