In my last post I wrote an article about looking back over our shoulder, to the year that was, and looking forward to the year that is yet to be.
Here are a bunch of resources to help you with your 2011 planning:
- From Dyana Valentine – what’s your business end tradition.
- Chris Guillebeau’s how to do an annual review. (I recently met Chris on the last of his 63 city book tour stop; watch for an upcoming blog post.)
- To stay atop of the curve: 2011 list of top learning resources
- For some help with pesky details: a free copy of my social media benchmarking template.
- Relax, planning doesn’t have to be perfect; see the book A Perfect Mess & my review of it.

One of my favorite planning tools is downtime. Downtime, an little used tool by some, is a place where one reads, sits around with friends or family, lives in the moment and reflects.
Thomas Moore, Irish poet, singer and songwriter, said: “It’s important to be heroic, ambitious, productive, efficient, creative, and progressive, but these qualities don’t necessarily nurture the soul. The soul has different concerns, of equal value: downtime for reflection, conversation, and reverie; beauty that is captivating and pleasuring; relatedness to the environs and to people; and any animal’s rhythm of rest and activity.”

I love the reference to finding your rhythm of rest & activity. And the need to nurture your soul. The world would be a far different place if we included ‘nurturing’ in our metrics.
