Weekly Planning

Tags
Mindset:
  • The goal is to reflect on your week, not to give good answers to these questions.
  • The weekly planning is already worth it if you succeed in successfully implementing one minor change per week.
  • Be objective.
    • Imagine that you're a consultant, hired to review your week.
  • Be efficient.
    • Try limiting yourself to 2 - 3 sentences each.
  • Be kind.
    • Don't be too harsh on yourself.
Agenda:
  1. Mini-Retro:
    1. What was great about our last meeting?
    2. What wasn’t great about our last meeting?
    3. What are we going to do differently this time?
Discussiontopics:
  • EA Sachen mit denen Yulia (& evtl Anabel) nicht aligned sind
  • ways to interact with more agreeable people
  • Cfar techniques von Yulia hören
  • Gespräch in Prague zu Videos
  • BBQ Session zu Videos

                                              1. Make a plan and try to "Murphyjitsu" it as much as possible.
                                              2. Imagine that your plan has failed.
                                              3. If you are shocked now, then you are done.
                                              4. If no, then simulate the most likely Failure Mode and adjust your plan.

                                            When you're done.
                                            • Write down all your to-dos lying around and date them if possible.
                                            • Schedule old to-dos.
                                            • Go through your emails, messengers and files and tidy up.
