Today is the second to last #FollowUpFriday of 2015! And for many of us, it’s the last Follow Up Friday landing on a work day.
So today, why not make one of your follow up actions today was reviewing the year, looking for:
- what went right,
- what you’d like to celebrate,
- what didn’t go as planned,
- and what you’d like to carry into 2016.
Be open to personal and professional accomplishments during your review. (Increasingly the “work/life” construct is a false dichotomy, isn’t it?)
Following up is Q2 work
You will need to have resolve to spend time like this. It is Quadrant 2 (Q2) work, a term popularized by Stephen Covey. Q2 is important work that is not urgent. This type of follow up doesn’t have a deadline. It’s not urgent like a ringing phone or in your face like an employee at your door.
But Q2 work will make you a far more effective leader. And Q2 work will make 2016 even more fulfilling.
Be sure to #FollowUpFriday
