“Pick a date then work backwards”.
My Boss says this all the time.
I work in a Unit in HR where we plan and deliver trainings. I never thought it would be hard. But as it is with everything involving logistics and many other people besides yourself, planning and delivering trainings is hard and annoying.
Do you know why he always said to pick a date? It’s because psychologically if you set a date for something, you sort of do everything within your power to make sure you are ready for that date. Especially when it involves stakeholders other than yourself.
Why am I talking about this?
My Boss’ advice as annoying as it always is, is always super helpful.
It makes things happen.
Personally, I feel that without this advice, I would never have accomplished half the things I have accomplished while working with him.
Anyway this is not a write up about my Boss.
It’s about you and me. It’s about us and why we never get around to doing the things we really want to do.
