  1. Thank you for the clear suggestions about how to start and use this tool. I started keeping a list like this a week ago, but wasn’t making time to add to it every day. As you mentioned, it’s difficult to remember exactly how I passed the time at work. I’m looking forward to trying to make this a daily habit.

    • Hi Bianca – thank you for the comment! Glad to hear that you already started down this road and are going to adjust to make it a daily habit. I would be interested to hear how it goes. As you said, I think you’ll find that daily notes will allow you to capture and reflect more effectively. Best of luck!

  2. Tom, this is an excellent activity to offer to someone looking to improve their current job and be prepared for the next role. Thanks for writing something so actionable and helpful!
