It is always great to find a blog entry that provides a simple-important-message-with-punch (SIMWP - it is up to you to decide how this acronym is pronounced, but I like symwup with a rising 'up' at the end.)
Sometimes we follow a tortuous path to find a gem. In this case I was catching up on discussions in the Professional Facilitators Network, including a discussion about how to transfer content on flip charts to Word. In a different discussion, Rebecca Twitchell posted a link to a recent blog at consultancy 'half full' called '5 Reasons Why a Calendar May be THE Single Most Useful Tool for the Success of Your Strategic Plan'. The author makes some excellent points about the value of the calendar in making your strategic planning efforts sustainable and regular.
I enjoyed the blog entry, which discusses the importance of what happens after the strategic planning session, or more accurately, between strategic planning sessions. It focuses on the value of adding appointments to your calendar - even suggesting you go out 5 years into the future.
I commend to you... 5 Reasons Why a Calendar May be THE Single Most Useful Tool for the Success of Your Strategic Plan
