There's a wonderful atmosphere in a big plant when not much equipment is running. You can hear yourself think. You can savor the smells and sounds of the plant, itself. The place feels almost alive, even when it's resting.
Downtime gives us an opportunity to savor the plant as it is and to consider what it could be. If we use the time wisely, we can set the direction we should travel, as individuals and as organizations. Later we will work to build the energy that will drive our plants to the next level.
