Here we are at the 3/4 mark for the financial year. How are you tracking?
The concept of a financial year is sometimes a challenging one. But I love it! I love overlapping time segmenting with a calendar year and a financial year, it ensures that there is never too long between drinks.
What I mean by that is, when plans have a 12 month horizon, sometimes we aren't pushing things as much as we should. Sometimes we can think - we have a whole year to implement that new initiative, so let's get back to the everyday work, which isn't necessarily the important work.
By using quarters, and overlapping financial year plans with calendar year plans, we can ensure we keep moving forward in terms of achieving our goals.
Whether your goals are based in performance, culture, communication, finance, operations or anything in between, having a quarterly check in can certainly assist with clarity and motivation.
So here we are 31 March 2022 with 1 quarter to go in the financial year and 3 quarters to go in the calendar year. How will you invest your focus in this next quarter?
