  • Activity Score - 79

  • Readiness Score - 75

  • Meditation Sessions - 10

  • Books read this month - 1

What Went Well

  • Maintaining relationships w/people in Australia and in the bay. Staying sane :)
  • Haven't entirely given up on tennis yet.
  • Adult things
    • Got money in order. Student loans paid so we're debt free! Finished filing some overdue tax returns. Figured out some basic 401k, backdoor, mega backdoor things.
    • Therapy has helped be a little more mindful. Trying to practice being flexible mentally and understand where extremes aren't beneficial. Probably finishing it up but was an interesting experience!
    • Physical Therapy!
    • New glasses & Contacts
  • Promotion!
    • Although, that wasn't a result of the work I did during this month but rather the work I put in 6 months ago :P.
  • Metrics slightly higher! Trending in the right direction.
  • Morning and Night Routine.

What Could Be Improved

  • Need to get more focused with work x2. Deep blocks. Remember to focus thinking on long term and everything fits in naturally.
  • Too much work and not enough habits - as always :P.
  • No Mindless.

Action items

  • Focus next retrospective on habits O_O


[P0] KR: Mindless is used to reflect on OKRs and Sprints

  • Spend one weekend on mindless.

[P1] KR: Read a book a month

  • Finished reading how to take smart notes.
    • Somehow I finished more books than I read.

[P1] KR: Write a post every two weeks.

  • 0 for now but maybe I'll get a quick one out tomorrow!

[P1] KR: Compete in a tennis tournament

  • Hit ~8 sessions of tennis! Nice job.
  • Did ~2 sessions of yoga :(

[P1] KR: Work less than 50 hours a week.

  • Started tracking morning and night stats. Still working too much in absolute numbers (I get distracted during work so by cutting down absolute numbers doesn't mean I'll do less work.)
