What has been your BIGGEST challenge this week?
How did you face it? Did you overcome it?
For me…it’s been time-keeping.
I’m normally spot on with time, but with the unexpected last-minute change in external circumstances, a project was tested and in the end, I had to work many more hours than originally intended.
How could I have prevented this?
Create a buffer.
To fit projects in and have enough time for everything I’ve done many back-to-back work hours, so now I’m going through my timetable and creating some ‘buffers’ to allow for unexpected changes.
I’m also dedicating a couple hours on Friday also, as I often speak with my clients during the week to assure them with our progress, this time gives me what I need to complete anything where I had been speaking to them instead, throughout the week.
The most important thing for me is customer service, so I NEVER sacrifice this time.
So, now your turn…what’s been your challenge this week?
