Today, what we’re going to do is do productivity properly. numero dos, we are going to be doing our episode where we take four questions, one from each of us, and we discuss them in alphabetical order. So we’re gonna go round robin, and take each question and discuss the question that each of us has brought to the table. And so because we are doing this alphabetically, aren’t you? We’re up first. And so go for it. What’s your productivity potpourri question for us. All right, I’m Art Gelwicks 1:04going to start us off with a thinker here. This is we always talk about retrospectives, whether it’s a daily retrospective, weekly, monthly. So I’m going to throw this out to you guys as a six month retrospective. If you think back over the productivity choices you’ve made over the past six months, is there one that you would change if you had the opportunity to? And how would you change it? Is there something that you decided during this time period that you thought was a good idea, but after executing, and it turns out, maybe not so much. And I’ll give you guys an opportunity to think about that. I’ll throw mine in there. And it’s actually a two parter. For me. My challenge was over this past six months, I decided to do more testing of whether or not I could capture notes digitally and analog pen and paper and make that system balance.

It disrupted my note taking a disruptive my note organization. And I’m still in the process of backtracking and recapturing things the way they should be. It’s, it was an idea at the time that had merit and I did learn a lot from it. But I would definitely not use my own day to day operational system as the guinea pig of that,
