After each workday, I wrote down:
✅ 1 thing that gave me energy
❌ 1 thing that drained my energy
The result: a list of things that I enjoyed or did not enjoy.
And that was more useful than I thought.
Because the list did not only bring clarity on what I enjoy doing.
Also, the list helped me to make positive changes to my working day.
For example, I wrote down:
✅ ENJOYED: Creating a new training, working for 2 hours without interruptions.
❌ DID NOT ENJOY: Being in a long meeting, in which I couldn't add much value.
Then, I decided to make two changes:
1 ▪️ Block time in my agenda for deep work, without interruptions
2 ▪️ Be more critical when I receive meeting invites
This works for me.
What works for you?
