Big Picture Planning

Take a quick look at the list of successes and disappointments you created in the first phase of your planning. Are there any successes you need to  include in your calendar for next year? Are there any disappointments from last year on your calendar you need to be remove?

Also, look at the work distribution. Did you load up too much work in any given month? Are travel commitments reasonable to maintain your workload? Are there ways to redistribute activities to make projects easier?

Look at the year. Are there ways to move activities around for efficiencies and to make sure you don’t create impossible deadlines for yourself?
