Don’t get me wrong, there’s much to be said for reading, napping, bingewatching TV, puttering, eating Grand Traverse cherry pie, and the like.
However, there’s a part of me (and probably of you) that thinks it would be good to use some of this “found time” productively.
I turned my attention to my practice of Personal Quarterly Offsites. At first, I considered the idea of doing some prep work for my end of the end Personal Quarterly Offsite at the end of January. Then, I wondered why I was limiting my Personal Quarterly Offsites to the end of each quarter.
Could I do more than four in a year and did they really have to happen at the end of the quarter?
Two answers. 1. Because I cooked up this exercise for myself, I could literally define it however I want. 2. I am the boss of me.
The result: a Mini Personal Quarterly Offsite now scheduled for Friday morning this week. Not a big deal, but a little refresh and course adjustment for the end of the year.
On the agenda:
1. Taking a fresh look at what I’ve learned from the Kennedy Idea Propulsion Laboratory Community on Mighty Networks so far and seeing what I can improve.
2. Ways to finish the year strong, including, given how 2020 has been, should I see how much time in December I can take off?
3. Spending some time on Value Propostion Canvases and Business Model Canvases for some of my ongoing projects.
If this idea appeals to you, I recommend that you check out my “Productive Personal Quarterly Offsites for Busy Legal Professionals” online course. ($99.99, or $39.99 for Kennedy Idea Propulsion Laboratory Community Premium members).
Doing a run-through of the course now and doing a mini-offsite this week will give you some quick focus and a bit of experience before you have your end-of-the-year Personal Quarterly Offsite.
Or you can skip productivity for a few days and make good unproductive use of your found time this week. I expect to do a lot of the latter, but wanted to stir in just bit of the former.
