Weeknote CW32 (S3E1)

Questions this season are from Question Cards.

Ok, let’s go.

Pre-started a new project with Cryptic Limited to do a real co-design project for people who are ordinarily disadvantaged by some of their legacy services. Very exciting but we have a crunched timeline and budget.

Company names are always made up and change week to week.

A project for Driftonics that was on a low simmer has come to the boil. I’ve roped in two fairly senior consultants to help. They’re doing an awesome job.

Our standardised training program is coming along. The two-hour sessions are almost planned. That only leaves the two-day sessions.

This might be the last week before I go into a month of training delivery for Beedlescape.

Also, went out for lunch with the team a a cool faux-Mexican place. Great vibe but the food was 3.5/5.

What are my expectations?

I expect the coming week to be increasingly busy. That training delivery for Beedlescape is going to need some preparation.

How did it make me feel?

This week felt good. Just busy enough, but with a good variety of things to think about and people to talk to.

What is truly important to me?

Work-wise, the most important thing is to maintain and increase the capability of my team. I’m about to launch a Research Skills program, so expect updates on that in future episodes.

Family-wise, it’s about to get to the pointy end of the year for everyone. The mental-health baseline of the house is going to be important to maintain and sustain.

Which decisions am I not making?

Gosh, question cards. Ask an easy one. I think I’m stalling on making space and time for planning the last third of the year. Sometimes it feels like there’s too much day-to-day to take time for the longer term view.
