The most powerful pattern in Agile Results is:
Monday Vision, Daily Wins, Friday Reflection
I introduce Agile Results in my best-selling book on time management Getting Results the Agile Way. (For a quick overview, benefits, testimonials, and videos, check out the landing page for Getting Results the Agile Way.)
The Monday Vision, Daily Wins, Friday Reflection pattern a big deal.
Because it creates a simple approach for personal results in work and life.
You learn how to quickly flow value each day and each week. Through Friday Reflection, you add a learning loop. By setting simple targets, chunking things down, and delivering little chunks of value, you get better and better at driving results.
You’ll astound yourself, and you’ll awaken new levels of resourcefulness and productivity you didn’t even know you had.
How do you get started?
It’s real simple.
Add 3 Reminders to Your Calendar
One of the simplest ways to build your Agile Results habit is to add 3 reminders to your calendar:
- Add a reminder on Monday Morning. Call it Monday Vision: "What are your 3 Wins for this week?"
- Add a reminder to each day. Call it Daily Wins: "What are your 3 Wins for today?
- Add a reminder to Friday: Call it Friday Reflection: "What are 3 things going well? What are 3 things to improve?"
You can literally prompt yourself to better performance.
It’s so simple in fact that you have to wonder how could something so simple create such profound results.
In fact, if you’re not sure how significant this can be to your life, watch Alik on Getting Results the Agile Way (Video), and how it changed his life.
Keep in mind, there is a lot to Agile Results.
But you don’t need it all at once.
Start small and go from there.
