Recently my colleague Tom Pick published an insightful article for G2 Planet, “
Tom reached out to me over the summer asking for my advice regarding what would help me to do my job more effectively. I thought for a few days before sharing my feedback with him. After receiving responses from several other thought leaders he found that several of us mentioned things like needing more hours within our day, many expressed a desire for more support and understanding from management and clients. All of us featured provided an array of answers and I shared the below advice:
“More hours in my day!
Seriously, sometimes days fly by and some days drag on, but when it comes to events it’s always that last minute rush of things coming together which can prove challenging at time.
I often find myself in a last-minute crunch and having to prioritize what really needs to get done at any given time. With two kids and my own consulting business, I’d say I’m a multi-tasking Momma, and working smarter and not necessary harder at all times is what’s helped me to get ahead over the years.”
What do you think? What would help you work more effectively? As my children are both back to school and settling into new routines I’m reflecting on my advice and enjoying reading other’s insight and commentary. The photo below was taken after my older son’s Lucas first day at his new school. We walked down the path to my car together as he told me all about his day and he reflected upon his day within a new environment with new teachers and friends. As he described his day it was refreshing to hear a fresh perspective from someone taking it all in, a sponge if you will. I constantly try to work more effectively and clean in and reflect, prioritize and improve and as I settle into my new routine I hope to continue to do so into the end of the year.
