In 2018, I’ve read this experiment by Tré Wee, who had recorded all of his learnings of 2018 and trimmed it down to 52, one per week. It inspired me to do the same, because as he says;
“Since one of the key purposes of reflection is to learn from previous experiences, to do it effectively means that we need to do two things,

  1. Remember as accurately as possible what has happened, at the point of reflection.
  2. Assimilate the information from the reflection in a way that we can remember it in the future.”

To make you understand more about my thoughts behind the quotes, I’ve added notes or hyperlinks wherever I could.
This year I accumulated around 87 learnings and after careful consideration, here is my selection of the most important 52 learnings, one per week, of 2019:

Guide To Doing-It-Yourself

How I do it and how you can do it

How I do it

I learned via Tre Wee’s post to use two apps for this, IFTTT’s Do Button and Evernote.

How you can do it

Creating a recipe on Do Button which saves to Evernote makes logging down your learnings very easy. It also encodes the timestamps, which is very helpful.

If you prefer to use a physical notebook, I’d recommend using a special notebook specifically for this.

If my primary tool fails me, I use a note app on my phone, take a screenshot or scribble it on a piece of paper.

Let me know if you’re starting next year, I’m definitely doing this again! 🙌

Guide To Doing-It-Yourself

How I do it and how you can do it

How I do it

I learned via Tre Wee’s post to use two apps for this, IFTTT’s Do Button and Evernote.

How you can do it

Creating a recipe on Do Button which saves to Evernote makes logging down your learnings very easy. It also encodes the timestamps, which is very helpful.

If you prefer to use a physical notebook, I’d recommend using a special notebook specifically for this.

If my primary tool fails me, I use a note app on my phone, take a screenshot or scribble it on a piece of paper.

Let me know if you’re starting next year, I’m definitely doing this again! 🙌
