Tom and I are excited to be spending the next four days in semi-seclusion with our team. There has often been this romanticized thought of a “retreat” to make some great things happen. While we’ve seen or heard of our fair share of mediocre retreats, we’re going about it a different way. We don’t think that just by sharing a space for a few days that we’re going to be enlightned with strokes of genius. What we do think is that we’ll sharpen and focus ideas that we have and get group buy-in. We’ll be able to deeply share information with the team and learn quite a bit. A few things that I’m looking forward to:
Proximity – We work remotely. It’s sure going to be nice to get everyone together, even for a little while. With the savings on office space rental, we were able to rent a nice private camp to relax and percolate ideas in.
Food – We’re going to be cooking and eating some awesome food. How can we possibly go wrong with this.
Fun – If we have a lot of fun and get a little bit of work done and return home refreshed and ready to hit the ground running, then we were successful!
Well that’s it for now, time to go start packing!
