A key part of staying on top of things is a regular review of all the projects you have. I use omnifocus to keep track of all my various projects. The software is set up for reviews a week after you did your last review. While I’d like to say that I could stick to that schedule, sometimes Sunday morning’s just happen to be when I can review everything. And that would through everything off for the next week.
This script here helps to reset that.
I saw a recent post on twitter on how to have better prompts for your Day One journal. The twitter link is here:
In short he uses Workflow to pre-populate the journal with prompts that are specific to the journal. He has three different journals, which led me to think about the two different types of journals I use. I have one for personal reflection and the other for Cadet Sail Training Program (CSTP). After a season of CSTP, and filling out the cadet evealuation reports well after the fact, I realized I didn’t keep records near as well as I should have. So next summer I will have workflow better filled out with the questions I need to ask myself (and the cadet) to better develop their leadership acumen.
