Organization is key to a planners’ success; a system for staying on track makes for a sense of control, even for the largest of workloads. But keeping track of daily tasks, upcoming events and goals can be overwhelming, and rarely are all those things recorded in one place. That is until the Bullet Journal took hold. Ryder Carroll, inventor of the Bullet Journal, calls it “an analog system for the digital age that will help you track the past, organize the present, and plan for the future."

The Bullet Journal’s simplicity and customization makes it accessible to everyone; a pen and notebook are the one two required supplies. The journal’s framework features an index for finding entries easily; a future log to write out the things you’d like to do someday; a monthly log that acts like a calendar for events and tasks you’d like to accomplish that month; and a daily log to make a bulleted list of tasks, events and notes each day. Visit bulletjournal.com for a video tutorial and guide to getting started.

Cañon City’s Echo Canyon River Expeditions offers a Battle of the Bighorn package from May through September (depending on water levels) that combines physical and mental challenges in a competitive and fun format for corporate team-building.

 

As corporate retreats continue to become more experiential, consider a summer camp format for grown-ups.

 

Recently, I’ve noticed the trend of meeting planners looking for a fully customized and personalized event experience, and there’s no better way to accomplish that than buying out an entire resort or hotel with a beautiful setting such as a mountain backdrop. Although a buyout can sound expensive and unobtainable, many ways exist to find flexible rates that will allow companies to book a private retreat while not overdrawing on any budgetary restrictions.
