“That was the missing link,” said Jeremy. He explained his meeting with Sylvia. As suggested, he went back to outline the list of next steps for the project he had assigned to her.
“Even Sylvia was relieved,” Jeremy explained. “She agreed. The reason she did not start the project was that she was never clear on what to do first, so she procrastinated. The simple process, to clarify the next steps made all the difference.”
“And how many steps in this project?” I asked.
“Five simple little steps. But until we laid them out, the project was going to sit until it was too late.”
“When will you follow-up on the five steps?”
“Friday, at 3:00pm. At least I learned that lesson, to calendar my follow-up meetings. We will see how she does.”
All in all, it was a good week.
