Don’t look now, but we’re halfway through 2022. We’re deeming June the new January—a perfect mid-year checkpoint to revisit all of those work and life goals. And we’re highlighting a collection of docs to help recommit to the ambitious projects that were so eagerly penciled into calendars and to-do lists six months ago.
The Docket is our version of the staff picks shelf at your local bookstore. Every month, we recommend published docs that we’ve personally read, loved, and copied. See past installments
From Trustin, Solutions: Collaborating with Shishir on this doc showed me a new side of Inbox Zero—it’s not a zero-sum game. Like Shishir, I find motivation in the positive mental and physical impacts of keeping my inbox organized. Keeping that inspiration in mind, I use the doc’s gamification to start each month with an empty inbox. And then I do my best to keep up the streak.
From Joe,Sales: Throughout the last few years, I’ve dedicated a lot of time to bettering myself professionally and personally. David’s doc is the perfect framework for planning, tracking, and visualizing my progress. Thanks to the time-chunked three-month sprints, I’ve found myself less distracted and more motivated to achieve my goals.
From Alison, Support: We've been inundated with work-from-home articles over the past few years, and frankly, the pajama bottoms, Zoom-from-your-couch jokes have me tired. Remote work isn't going anywhere for many companies. We have to adapt our rituals if we want our teams to stay as keyed-in as in an office setting. As a manager, this doc gave concrete ways to structure authentic, meaningful cadences for my reports while continuing the remote life.
From Andrea, Demand Gen: SEO is a cross-functional discipline, and I get to work with colleagues from across teams—from engineering to content development to web design. Working with a diverse group of people is one of my favorite things about my role, but it also poses challenges in ensuring that we're all working towards the same goals and on the same timeline. This doc makes it easy to link each contributor's work directly to our SEO OKRs, no matter which team the contributor is on.
