But today I had the realization that I need to make one, but it is going to be the same every year from now on.
Do one audacious thing this year?
I am still reading In the Plex (see previous post), and they were talking about these quarterly objectives/benchmarks that every employee must keep. The first thing that amazed me was that every employee had to publish them on the company website with their bio and picture (can you imagine publishing your Professional Growth Plan to your class website?). The second, was that you were not expected to fully achieve your goal each quarter. In fact, you were actually in danger of being fired if you exceeded your goal because it shows that you played it safe and were "audacity challenged."
We can't keep playing it safe. We have to be better next year than we were this year.
So, any suggestions?
