Start setting up things for next year but always exceed my current year too. Not fair to mail it on but also not smart to cram things into the end of the FY at expense of starting strong next year. Just like every publicly traded company. Slightly exceed expectations and set up for downplaying then exceeding next year.

Or do you switch to longer term opportunities that fill up the next years pipeline?

I don’t have a target. I just keep doing things that seem worthwhile.
