Lesson 10, Evaluating the Day

Part of getting better at anything is making constant adjustments to improve performance. Time management is no different. Every day I pause to reflect. Out of that reflection I adjust my plan for the next day. A written reflection will push you to clarify and refine you thoughts on what you did well and what you need to change.

  • Write a brief reflection at the end of each day. This doesn’t need to be a saga, just a brief paragraph or two. Include in your reflection both things that you did well and things you need to work on
  • Reflect specifically on these two questions: “Did I do what I said I would do?” or “Was I busy or was I productive?” The first question I got from Allyson Lewis’s 7 Minute Life Daily Planner. It’s amazing how much difference it makes if you will just ask yourself that one question at the end of the day.
