Do After Action Reports

In many military circles, after every mission, the teammates sit down and go over what went right, what went wrong, and some ideas on how to get fewer things wrong in the future. In written form, this is called an After-Action-Report or AAR.

Lately, I’ve taken to doing AARs at the end of my days and weeks, to try to optimize what I get done in a day. So far, it has me making more lists so I don’t forget things, and getting to bed earlier than I have in years. So far, these seem like a good idea that I want to keep up.
