I’m getting ready to start a new job, and one of the things that is most exciting to me is the chance of a fresh start (can you say “inbox zero”?). It’s not that I want to scrap everything I’ve already done, but I always love being on the threshold of something new – it’s a chance to evaluate and say “How can I start off in the best possible way? What would I do differently going forward? What are the things I want to focus on?”
I want to make sure I don’t get so absorbed in my day to day tasks that I lose sight of the big picture. I want to make sure I ask for help when I need it, and not try to shoulder burdens alone out of some misguided sense of personal responsibility. I want to make sure I’m giving my team what they need to do their best work.
And I really want to find an organization system that works for me!
If anyone out there is still paying attention to this blog, leave me a comment and let me know what you’d do differently if you had a fresh start.
