Your desk is rarely the milieu for profoundly revolutionary ideas. Cure "desk paralysis" with untethered brainstorming. Mobilize! Pile the team into the car. Facilitator in back. Driver's vote counts twice. Let the ideas run a little wild. Generate as many ideas as possible without constraints or refinements.

It's time for annual re-assessment of your Company Vision. If you don't have a Vision start here, now. If you do have a Vision ask yourself these same questions: What would complete success look like in three years? Write a list of factors that define "complete success" to you. Next, for every success factor, write down at least one immediate action you could take to get there.

Do you know what makes your co-workers and clients tick? Ask people at least one seemingly irrelevant question per day. What films can they quote? Where have they lived/traveled? Milk chocolate or dark? It's easier and more fun to collaborate from a place of understanding. And details matter.
