Time management – lp

I have discovered two things: I have built my life around people pleasing and I don’t know how to manage my time when other people are involved. I work for someone who is resistant to project schedules because he thinks it goes against good client relationships. So I end up confused about what I should be working on, what the actual scope of the project is, how to know when it is done, how I should be following up with clients and generally how to do a good job. I want my monthly goal to be related to work but I am really struggling to figure this out because it involves other people’s schedule and people who don’t want to schedule work. How can I take back responsibility here, provide value to my employer and manage my own time when we have different ways we want to work? How do I make this a goal?
