The first update of every round comes quickly; but, this time, I feel like I’ve got more than random progress to report – and the update is a whole lot simpler than those I’ve done previously.
Why is that?
All right, I know I asked the question just to be able to answer it – but this might help more folks than just me, so here we go:
This round, my first with The 12-Week Year, involves not just setting goals, but creating weekly action plans that support and move me toward the completion of those plans. So, throughout the week, I need only schedule the action steps, then execute.
Of course, there’s a bit more to it than that…but I’m still working my way through the learning process – and this is as far as I’ve gotten, right now…I’m planning to move further along after I sleep, and, in a week or two, to have fine-tuned the entire process.
Until then, though – my first-ever 12 Week Year/ROW80 Update!
