Slow Down

In SAFe, there’s an IP Iteration — the last Iteration in a Planning Interval (PI). This is where, among other things, we focus on Innovation… and Planning for the next PI.

It has a “Slow Down” effect… a needed “Oasis” between long Planning Intervals.

After the 2-day Punta Fuego trip, there is an upcoming three-day long trip ahead of us. We needed an “Oasis” between these long trips. We had to slow down.

So, we had the following “Oasis”:


Went to “Fully Booked” — found and bought great books to read

Took our time eating breakfast

Relaxed at the nearby Starbucks

Believe it or not, there is a Church in the mall… so we went there

Had Evening Cocktail at Seda

At Greenbelt, Makati:

Had afternoon tea at The Peninsula Manila

Visited the Ayala Museum — a must see

Enjoyed the Café at the Ayala Museum

Key Idea: Slow down… delight in the things you can see only when you slow down.
