I hope that you will take a few minutes to focus on the following questions as you go about your Q4 planning:
As you think back to this past quarter (so the period of July, August and September):
What were my major achievements this quarter?
What do I want to celebrate?
As I consider my goals (and resolutions) I made at the start of the year, how am I doing with these on a scale of 1-10? Which ones are becoming new habits or something I can check off?
Which ones need to be let go of?
As a leader, what have I noticed about my team this quarter?
As a leader, what notes should I make about performance issues (if I haven't done it already!)
The thing that has helped me be most productive this quarter has been ______
The thing that has helped me be most successful this quarter has been ______
The thing that has helped me be happiest this quarter has been ________
The thing that has helped me be most healthy has been _______
What have I noticed about my work/productivity/results and/or relationships during the summer months (if you are in the northern hemisphere) or winter (if you are in the southern hemisphere)?
Take note of any key metrics which are important for you, and your work. For corporate leaders this may be progress on key KPIs (Key Performance indicators). For small business owners this may be key metrics around social media, sales, customer outreach etc.
