This is a question you could ask your direct customers, teammates, boss, or even your spouse.
So can I serve better?
It’s ironic that this is all ultimately aimed to serve me. If I’m not doing my job as best as I can, I’m not providing the best value.
State your plan.
1) Report status and impasses to your boss
2) Ask for help if you need it
3) do a reality check on your progress
All active projects should be prominently displayed on a board (kanban–physical or electronic) so that everybody can:
1) see what is being worked on
2) see who needs help and
3) see what needs help
People like Scott want to help and can be of tremendous value. They just need to be pointed in the right direction.
