My wife is great at planning — very intentional when she is designing our trips. However, she is also amenable to emergent things. That’s the balance we need in every trip: balance the intentional and the emergent things.
Fundamentally, on all our trips, we keep planning and re-planning (due to emergent things) and adjusting with our eyes fixed on our objectives.
- Photoshoot by the Opera House — yes, our daughter, Lily, is an accomplished classical ballet level 5 dancer
- The Rocks
- Ken Done Art Gallery at The Rocks
And we added things unplanned for — emergent things:
- Afternoon Tea at The Rocks
- Paddy’s Market
- Sydney Piecafe… again…this time, at night… we ordered 4 pies to go!
What a day and night with lots of happenings!
Key Idea: Planning is essential in SAFe (and in life!) — it is the key to success. There will be intentional items in the plan… but adaptive to cater for emergent items efficiently and effectively along the way — this is the agility that we need in life and in business.
There are many other ideas like this — short but sweet ideas — in my new book, ‘SAFe (6.0) Is like …’ . It is available on Amazon… and it has reached ‘# 1 New Release’ several times! Check it out.
