Software Engineering, Project Management, and Effectiveness
Agile is hot.
Especially, the Agile Way.
I wrote up a new step-by-step How To use Monday Vision, Daily Wins, Friday Reflection:
How To – Use Monday Vision, Daily Wins, Friday Reflection to Triple Your Productivity
The goals is to help you master motivation, time management, and personal productivity with a simple approach that you can use instantly.
The Monday Vision, Daily Wins, Friday Reflection pattern is probably one of the most important concepts I introduced in Agile Results, and explained in my book, Getting Results the Agile Way. (Getting Results the Agile Way has been a best seller on Amazon in the categories of Time Management and Business Life.)
It’s a powerful productivity pattern that can easily triple your productivity. It does so by eliminating noise from your work, to help you ruthlessly focus, and relentlessly execute. It helps you create extreme clarity by focusing on a short-list of top priorities. By adding “the fun factor”, and turning results into “wins”, you improve your motivation and momentum for unstoppable results.
There’s another key to Monday Vision, Daily Wins, Friday Reflection that makes it work. It’s based on a week on the calendar. It’s a specific recipe for what to do on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. It’s easy to remember. It’s easy to do.
And, with Friday Reflection, you get better each week, so the whole system keeps improving.
The other reason Monday Vision, Daily Wins, Friday Reflection works so well is because it’s optimized for the productive artist. Rather than a rigid system, it’s flexible by design. You can choose how big or how small to make your wins. You can choose what to focus on when you identify the results you want to achieve. For example, you can focus on the impact, or you can focus on how you achieve your results.
Most importantly, it’s a healthy reminder to connect your results to your values, so you can take your productivity to new levels.
I’ll be adding more How Tos in the near future to the Agile Results How Tos page on Getting Results.com, so if you have any special requests for How Tos, be sure to send my way.
