Tip of the Week:  Do a Weekly Check on Your Objectives

  • Take the objectives page from your annual planning document/review and tape it inside on of your drawers.
  • Each Friday before you leave, open the drawer, look at your objectives, and write down your progress toward each of those objectives for the past week.
  • This is a way to keep your focus on what is important, capture your accomplishments, and provide a nice wrap -up to the week!
