End of the month........

Breckland Orchard collage 2Half term last week kind of threw me!  I have a little ritual come month end at Breckland Orchard, where I do a snapshot report on the previous 4 weeks. I know that makes me a little ‘sad’ but it discipline that was second nature when I worked in the corporate world, so I guess its just ingrained!

The report is only short and not as formal as Management Accounts for example…..much more words and picture focussed, but it does give me a good steer as to what’s going on. It takes about 20 minutes to do and I keep the same format every month.

I also document:

  • What’s gone well
  • What’s not gone great
  • What’s coming up in the next 4 weeks
  • Learnings and Lessons

I always thinking taking a risk on something new is OK, but I don’t want to keep repeating things that aren’t great, so documenting lessons is an important ritual.

Half term kind of delayed the October report, but it was done on Tuesday this week……and everything is back good in the world!
