Discussion on: What was your win this week?

Not necessarily a win for this week, but my appraisal is coming up, and unlike last year, I've been bullet journalling my work notes, so pulling out my achievements and challenges for the year was soooo much easier than last year.

Recommendation to you all : journal, and put your tasks in your journal. Future you will thank you.

I am required to provide a weekly report with weekly accomplishments. It does makes it easier when appraisal time is due. It also keeps him informed minimizing surprises.

And yes, future you will thank you!

I've been journaling my daily work (and life) for about 2 years now, it has proven extremely useful. At work, I can always have a list of things I worked on to prove how I spent my time, in case someone asks. In life, it helps me fight the inner chatter in my head that says that I haven't done enough things today and that I have wasted my time. Visualizing how I spend my time at work and life helps a lot!
Every end of the month I go through the ~30 notes and make a general monthly review of achievements. At the end of the year, I go through these 12 notes for an annual review.
