Getting Results The Agile Way Review

Back at it today with a mini review of a book I read called “Getting Results the Agile Way”. If you are a high performer you should keep reading, it will help you have a kick ass week.

Still here? Ok. See my lite review below.

The Rule Of Three

If your week ended TODAY, what 3 results should you have completed? Now decide what 3 outcomes you want by the end of the day(week if you are fancy). These should be results that, if achieved, you’d give yourself a high five for. Write them down.

Close The Loop

Now, go to your calendar, and put in a 15 minute event to review your day, week, or month. Ask yourself 2 questions:

“What 3 things went well?”
“What 3 things can I improve?”

The answers there will give you actionable intelligence for your next session.
Once complete, you have created a powerful loop. Even if you have a crappy, non productive day/week you know exactly what you need to do to make it better. If you have an average day/week you get the same benefit.
Try it. Test it today. Let me know how it works for you.
