Weekly review: Week ending January 17, 2014

Posted: - Modified: | weekly

I've been really ramping up my delegation. =) (See the series of sketches regarding being my own client for the motivation.) Promising. One of my goals is to outsource practically all of the parts of my podcasting process so that all I have to do is suggest some names, prepare for the interview, show up, chat and take notes, and save the file somewhere. This will require me to actually trust someone else with my Google account, so we'll see how well that works…

Funny, I thought I'd been drawing less because I was spending the time focusing on specifying delegated tasks instead, but when I looked at the list of sketches, I actually still drew quite a lot. Most of that was from Wednesday's drawing sprint of thinking through some coaching-related questions before the session I have with Ramon Williamson in a couple of weeks.

Next week is my Canadian citizenship test. I think it will be all right.
