I know it's the 5th but I have to key them in.

Every month, I do a Hangouts call with 2-4 other people. We debrief the previous month and set our monthly goals.

So here are mine for August.

Business Development

Outcome: 3 new clients

Key results:

  • 3 strategic reach outs
  • 8 introductions
  • 6 meetings booked

I met with a mentor today. He gave me the best advice: just ask. I have the ability to just ask for introductions to ideal clients so long as I describe them well ("Do you know anyone who..?") and ask the right people. He's so right.
I'll start with 3 strategic reach outs (he'll be first) and we'll see how I go.

Manage my capacity

Outcome: Get better at scoping my weeks

Key results:

  • 100%+ hours completed / hours planned
  • 0 hours "owed"
  • 100%+ invoiced / expenses

I kept getting annoyed that I wasn't completing my planned hours. Until I ran the average. It turns out I've been scoping 45% more than the average actual hours from the past few months. What a blind spot.
Now I'm just treating that average as my fixed capacity. It'll be fine, right?

Author up

Outcome: Have a project plan for getting a book happening

Key results:

  • 4 hours of research

Yep, it's time to write a book. Which means I've got to figure out what that means. Perhaps I can do a research project through a university. Perhaps I can self-publish. Perhaps I can sell the book. We'll see, I guess.

    @rosieodsey - This is very well written Rosie. You have mastered the ability to define what you want to do and what success looks like. This makes me want to redo my August goals.

    Thank you for sharing this.

      @keni You're super welcome! It took a lot of practice! My first goals were more like wishes. I might dig them up one day.
