The Best Way to Use the Last Five Minutes of Your Day - Peter Bregman - Harvard Business Review
"Every day, before leaving the office, save a few minutes to think about what just happened. Look at your calendar and compare what actually happened — the meetings you attended, the work you got done, the conversations you had, the people with whom you interacted, even the breaks you took — with your plan for what you wanted to have happen. Then ask yourself three sets of questions:
* How did the day go? What success did I experience? What challenges did I endure?
* What did I learn today? About myself? About others? What do I plan to do — differently or the same — tomorrow?
* Who did I interact with? Anyone I need to update? Thank? Ask a question? Share feedback?"
