Know Yourself

When planning an Adventure or Retreat, look at yourself first. 
  • Are you an extrovert or an introvert? Your answer to this question may determine how you structure your offering. The more time you need alone for yourself, the more alone and reflection time you'll want to design for your participants in your outing. When they are alone, you get to be alone too.
  • What is your tolerance for hosting? Do you love to host events that have large numbers and go for days? Or perhaps you a great host for a few hours. Your answer will determine whether or not you offer one-day or multi-day retreats. 
  • Are you independent in everything your do or do you tend to rely on others for ideas, sharing, coordinating and tasks? Your answer will make your decision about having a partner or collaborator for your offering.
  • What time of day are you at your best? Schedule your one-day offerings around this time of day. If you are doing a multi-day retreat, make sure you're on during your best time of day and schedule individual reflection and quiet time during those times when you are less effective.
  • Are you energized by a group discussion or do you love having more intimate one-on-one conversations? This might determine the number of participants in your adventure. And, it may also determine how you work with your participants; as a group or one-on-one throughout the day or multi-day offering.
There's more I'm sure. You know yourself. Just be sure to consider what you know about yourself as you plan your next offering.
