Retrospectives For Life

Through my time in the Agile world I have realized the true importance of a Retrospective in everyday life. You may be asking, “what is a Retrospective?” and “how can I use them?”. Let me explain…

A Retrospective as defined, is looking back on or dealing with past events or situations. If you take this concept and apply it to life it could look something like this. You write in a journal, on a daily calendar, or even little scraps of paper that you put in a jar, these three things: What has gone really well? What sucked and I want to change? What am I grateful for?. Once you have these items documented for, lets say, a month… you can pull them out and start to see the changes you want to focus on for the next month as well as some of the things you want to ensure you are repeating for the future.

This is a practice that can be used as an individual, with a partner, with children, or even with co-workers. What you will find is an iterative change in the way you live and communicate.

If you’re old enough, you might remember the Stuart Smalley SNL skits “Daily Affirmations.”…
