2020 Retrospective Thoughts
The end of the year always prompts thoughts and reflections on what went down, what was worth celebrating, and where tweaks or even overhauls are needed.
In this episode I talk about retrospectives and how to do them (and why), and then I dive into this podcast’s 2020. There were highs and lows, but in general, I think the podcast has been a worthwhile endeavor for me that I will continue doing.
Various resources I mentioned in the episode
- The freebie bonus download of 5 tips to unleash the astounding power of retrospectives.
- Research on the value of retrospectives by Scott Tannenbaum and Christopher Cerasoli
- My article “To 10x Your Profits Start With Retrospectives“
- Tim Ferriss’s Past Year Review article (I mistakenly called it “Year in Review” in the episode)
- My previous podcast episodes about retrospectives:
The script for this episode
As I mentioned in the episode, most of my podcasts these days are pre-scripted, although I do go “off book” on occasion. So, instead of getting the show transcribed, I just provide the script if it’s clean enough.
