Inappropriate action planning makes me sad

Chris Corrigan

And no action plans, no next steps, no commitments, no necessary reports. A few months later there was a harvest document lovingly stewarded by a few people. And sometimes, there are gatherings where next steps and action plans are important and necessary and are the reason why we are gathering. That alone is significant action.

First we design the bookends: Purpose on the one hand and harvest/action on the other hand. The meeting itself therefore become the vehicle by which a group of people reach a harvest and wise action ground in a purpose and a deep need. Harvest. Wise action.
