  1. As a customer we wanted to get the deliveries as soon as we could
  2. The bookstore delivered the order in parts. This enabled us to enjoy some of the books sooner than we having to wait for weeks for all of them to arrive together.
  1. Team can share your workload freeing up time which you can use for learning and thinking beyond the roots into future.
  2. They can work out their own problems and you don’t have to be omnipresent
  3. Provides chance for them to empathise with you, learn and grow.
  1. Either beginning of the day or end of the day make a list of ‘things to do’
  2. For the tasks for the day, I like to ask the following to myself: are these the highest priority and need to be done now?
  3. Based on this priority, which task I won’t be able to do today? What are the impacts of those?
  4. Can I delegate some of my tasks? Why not?
  1. What were my achievements and low points.
  2. Identify challenges within/outside the team that I can convert into opportunities.
  3. Setup 1–1 sessions with leaders, 1 or 2 levels up. Talk about their goals and priorities, poke a bit into the problems they see. These are nuggets of gold that can help you get opportunities to shine.
  4. These 1–1s help you get face time with your leadership, understand their thoughts and also showcase to them directly what you are working on.
