Raise a T.O.A.S.T: Time Out And Stock Take
When we have an idea or a goal, we all fall in love with it a little. As the love grows we get followers for our ideas, because love has lots of power. All this love is good and has lots of benefits. Of course there is a catch. This excess love can make you blind. And so I say raise a T.O.A.S.T at pre-determined times : Take the time to call time out and take stock and have a discussion / a quick check in :
1) What did we set out to do and why?
2) What are we actually doing and whats going well?
3) What's not going well?
4) Do we need to revisit our goals? Why ? Why Not?
5) Lets go ahead some more / Let's Stop.
Use this in relationships, in projects, in business reviews. But do it often. A post mortem does help but ...So get in there while there is still hope and have more fun along the way.
