Chronicle Your Work

It's important to document your work. No one else will do it, so it might as well be you.

When everything is laid out neatly and in sequence, you will feel much more like getting on with the job. - Brian Tracy

It's important to document your work.
Keep track of your responsibilities, roadblocks, and results.

No one else will do it, so it might as well be you.

This can apply to so many...

  • students aspiring to become interns
  • interns aiming for a full-time gig
  • SDRs who want to be an AE
  • reps who want to lead a team
  • managers climbing towards VP status
  • people seeking a promotion

Handling several projects at once?
Thinking no one's aware of your work?
Wondering if it'll get you anywhere?
Need a timeline of your progress?

Write it down.
See it from above.
Use it to organize and prioritize.

At a minimum, a page or two of punch points can...

• amplify visibility and recognition
• serve as a career progression path
• quantify your efforts and impact
• drive accountability and performance
• align your work with broader goals
• increase skills and competencies
• help you organize and prioritize

Look back on the trail of breadcrumbs you've left behind.
Look ahead to who will benefit from your work, including the new you.

Whether others see it or not doesn't matter.
Putting it on paper makes it easier to articulate your value.
It gives you something to show for yourself.
