If you’re a consultant with business development responsibilities you may want to hold yourself accountability on a weekly basis.
There’s a great (free) email-based App [ getweeklyupdate ] that sends you an email prompt each week to help you manage this. It’s like being your own boss, breathing down your own neck.
I’ve started using it for the 7 questions I ask myself every Friday afternoon.
That’s it. Every week. Forty-five minutes.
It’s an end of week nudge and, for me, if two weeks go by without some decent focused activity I know I’m slacking.
If you prefer a nudge at the beginning of the week there might be more suitable questions like these:
- What progress did you make on last week’s plan?
- What do you want to achieve this week?
- What’s your plan for the week?
[ getweeklyupdate ] is fully configurable, so you can make up your own questions too.
Let me know how you get on.
