I am not sure that I find keeping my mind open tiring day after day. It energizes me. Sometimes I am frustrated by the lack of time to implement the things I would like.
What has really helped me out in the past is to engage in direct, planned, structured collaboration. This year I am doing another inquiry question with a colleague through the Networks of Inquiry and Innovation. I am really excited about that. Some great collaborating will happen. Structured deadlines are critical so intentions and ideas don’t get shoved to the bottom of an ever-expanding to-do list. Not to mention a messy desk. Looking forward to structured collaboration time in the timetable, as well.
