Assuming you are on a 12/31 year end like my firm.

Our billable year ends on 11/1, so my numbers reset after this month

Try to bang out some “easy billing” for the next few days so as to pace yourself but still make it look good.

Congratulations! Honestly I’d probably go into overdrive so the firm views you as an overachiever, not just hitting the target and .. well, going back to bed.

Not sure 4 days of overdrive is going to make much of a difference, but I take your point!

In the same position except I exceeded the requirement last week and have very little billable work... year ends in a week and I have very little motivation to ask for more work.
