►Under what circumstances are you most productive?
►What are your biggest time bandits?
►What changes would help you be more in control of your day?
►What values are important to you in your workplace?
►Which parts of your work energize you? drain you?
►What percentage of your time is spent in energizing versus draining activities?
►What responsibilities could you delegate?
►What qualities and skills have contributed to your success?
►Which qualities or behaviors are getting in your way? How?
►What gives your work meaning? What do you want more of?
