I’ve been thinking about whether I want to change the frequency of these posts, because they can be hard to keep up week-over-week. I do like Weeknotes because they provide an honest and informal view into how a person thinks and works; you can see naturally how a person’s capacity for doing stuff ebbs and flows. For now, I’ve decided to keep the weeklies, and just move writing them to Fridays. I’m building a personal weekly review habit at work, and so I think it would be nice to go over my work stuff for the week, then type up my Weeknotes while I’m already in a reflective mood.
If you’re wondering what I write about in my weekly reviews at work, I:
- Review what I accomplished that week (clarifying impact where needed) and anything particularly interesting that happened
- Write down my prioritized tasks for the next week
- Capture anything I’m currently thinking about: what I want to improve at, strategies that might make me a more effective PM, any feedback I’ve received, etc.
The weekly reviews I do for myself make it SO MUCH EASIER to type up Official semi-annual reviews, because the answers are all right there. I’d like to start a practice reviewing my personal notes seasonally or annually, so I can observe how and in which direction I’m growing.
Not much time for personal projects this week, but did get around to some small administrative items for Draft Jam: I set up the project email address and ordered SSL sertificates for my registered domains.
