Hang in there - coordinating the news now is like herding frogs, and we have to be grateful for those who are doing it.

Running a strategic planning project with a virtual team can sometimes feel a bit like herding frogs. Everytime you think you have rounded up and completed an issue, another one pops up. And while you try to solve that, the first one reappears. This sort of problem is typical when people are balancing different priorities. It is tempting to accept delays as inevitable. This is dangerous. When team members ask for a delay or cannot make commitments, they should be held to account. Sometimes you will need a firm hand to get the job done.
