A retrospective for your work

The benefits of reviewing your day

  1. What went well today?
  2. What could have gone better?
  3. What will I do differently tomorrow?

How to make it work for you

  1. Determine the right cadence and frequency for your self-retrospective (mine’s daily, but you could do it weekly or bi-weekly)
  2. Schedule it in your calendar (I like to do it at the end of the day — I’m not super productive after a long day of work anyway).
  3. Ask and write down the answers to the three questions above
  4. Conduct a retrospective on your retrospectives (i.e., hold yourself accountable)
