It’s Friday and most of the world is checking out. These days, with the connected economy, it’s not much of a work day.
But it’s a great ritual every week to line up your next week. So, here’s a little strategy you can use at the end of the week so you don’t simply launch unintentionally into a Monday of chaos:
- Make a list of people you want to connect with next week. See my advice on Starring Contacts.
- Schedule calls using your calendar. Here’s the best practices on being a leader with your calendar. Your invitees will react with a yes or a no.
- Move the invitation to another time if need be.
Weeks simply keep going by relentlessly. This is a little hack so you can get a little control and make your time align with your goals. It’s about getting results.
How about checking in with your network before checking out for the weekend?
