What do you do if you only have two weeks left with your family before an extended 18 month (or perhaps indefinite) absence? You will be able to e-mail or call occasionally, but will otherwise have only a 2 week leave period to reunite with them during that time. To use some management parlance, what are your big rocks? What do you leave undone? Think about it- write it down to help clarify your thinking.
I had the opportunity recently to live this exercise. I’d be interested in your thoughts on this if you feel so inclined- post comments below. I’m trying to post on the page occasionally, and would love to hear from you.
