I was working with a coaching client last week and he said, “I have to get all of these projects done by year-end.” Having just looked at the calendar a few hours before to set some realistic deadlines for my own team, I thought it wise to consider how many weeks there are before year-end.
As this client is with a university, and the university pretty much shuts down the week of Thanksgiving and then in mid-December right after finals, there are three to four productive work weeks before year-end for him. Although your organization might not operate on an academic schedule, you are probably feeling similar pressure to meet goals and finish projects.
So, given that the timeline is tight, how can you manage your work and personal commitments for the remainder of 2022? Here are some techniques that I’ve learned work well for my clients, and for the Concordia team as well.
Looking at the weeks ahead and making a plan will allow you to finish the year strong.
