From time to time it is a good idea to look back on what you’ve been doing to see where you are in relation to where you want to, and need to, be.
Today has been a 3/4 year analytic view of where I’m at; allowing me to see the focus points required for the final quarter of 2016. Facts and figures do give you this focus and in some cases they can be a rude awakening. Fortunately that is not the case today, in fact quite the opposite. Q2 -2016 didn’t make for the best reading but knowing how much work I’d put into the pipeline leading up to that I was confident that Q3 would paint a prettier picture. I wan’t wrong.
So moving into Q4 I can concentrate on 2 main areas, both of which will ensure that my accountability for delivering in 2016 is upheld and also reduce the feast and famine from earlier in the year going forward into 2017.
All in all I’ve managed to produce what I set out to do, albeit not in the way I had hoped to do. Looking back and reflecting on how things have materialised in the manner that they have, has given me direction and insight into what I can do to improve for the coming year.
