Time Management Tuesday: Staying On Goals And Objectives

Someone, I won't mention any names but he knows who he is, suggested that the What Did You Do This Week, Gail? posts I've been doing once a week lately are not his favorite part of Original Content. They're becoming a favorite of mine. I've been staying on my goals and objectives this past month and a half or so, and those check-in posts are the reason why.

The last few years I've been checking on my goals and objectives quarterly or, once, not until the six-month point. I sometimes found myself rushing around in the fall to try to catch up on goals, and particularly objectives, that I'd forgotten about. I'm spreading the work around to a much greater extent this year by checking so much more frequently.

I got the idea for this from 18 Minutes by Peter Bregman. He suggests doing this goal evaluation daily. Weekly is all I can manage right now, and even that is helping.
