Mum Top Tip 23: My Weekly Status Report

This is a bit of a random post.

I was talking to my lovely friend at work, Mark, who keeps me sane on Office Communicator (Lync).

He suggested that it might be worthwhile sharing my status report template with others, so I thought you might be interested

My Weekly Status Report

Every week, on a Thursday or Friday, I complete a status report for myself.

It helps me take stock of what’s gone well each week and what hasn’t gone so well that I might need to do differently in the future.

It also helps me not lose track of time and not let the weeks drift into each other.

I complete all of my status reports in Evernote, as it helps me to check back if I want to find something.

Hopefully you might find this useful too.
