Some take to strategic planning like fish to water.
Strategic planning shouldn't be hard; should it?
I'm finding it has its challenges. Lacking a crystal ball, the future is a big unknown so it is hard to prepared fully for it. So, strategically, planning should be light and flexible with overall goals of moving forward. Specifics will seem "quaint" and outdated when we look back - even if we are only looking back from about 2 weeks out!
Yet, without some concrete plans, the strategic planning seems like light hearted desires. Actions make the goals real.
Quandary: Keep it loose and light - or - give concrete steps and actions
