    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.
