Reflecting on the days activity with three questions: How? What? Who?
Every day, just before finishing work, save a few minutes to reflect about what happened today. Look at your calendar and compare what actually happened — the meetings you attended, the work you got done, the conversations you had, the people with whom you interacted, even the breaks you took — with your plan for what you wanted to have happen. Then ask yourself three sets of questions:
- How did the day go?
- What did I learn today?
- Who do I need to thank, update, give feedback?
This is not my original thought but I really like the idea of reflecting back on each day. I have taken liberty with the questions but the core idea remains.
Put it in your calendar as a regular meeting with yourself.
