On Tracking and Celebration
Fragment from imaginary dialogues
“Track only what’s worth tracking.“
“What is worth tracking?”
“It’s more important to track what didn’t go well than what did. That’s where the gems (principles) are found.”
“Tracking what went well allows you to celebrate it at the end of the day. (retrospective celebration)”
“It’s better practice to celebrate what went well immediately after.
Better to spend the day in celebration by filling it with little celebrations throughout than having just one at the end of the day. Their effect compounds.
To make the initial principle more specific:
Track what doesn’t go well.
Imediately celebrate every little thing that does.“
