Immediately after you accept a new responsibility, such as spearheading a big project, draft a week-by-week schedule of short-term goals. By breaking down a massive job into its component parts, you can track your ongoing progress with preset checkpoints along the way. One strategy: Give yourself quantifiable objectives to meet every Friday before you leave for the weekend. Post the objectives on an oversized calendar by writing them in the appropriate days. For example, if you need to compose a financial report within 60 days, commit to completing a certain number of pages each week.
