Week in Review, Leadership and Journal Blogging

Last week Friday, I made the conscious decision to shift my focus from weekly reflections to daily reflections for my leadership program. At the end of the day, I enjoy journaling or writing my thoughts down more than taking what amounts to a survey. I was feeling survey fatigue when it came to the regimented weekly reflections.

This week has been a success in this regard: I wrote three journal entries and found myself centered on the work during the times I was writing and reflecting as well as more able to recall what moments of value occurred on a daily basis.

As someone who is naturally introspective and constantly trying to improve myself, filling out a form is merely symbolic, which is why I believe it led to fatigue. The following things are highlights from my ruminating during the week:

So today, I asked the questions, shared my experiences, connected to a colleague, and decided to prioritize work now that will have a lasting impact on a common workflow. Not all of that can be called strategic, not all of it can be called necessary, but on a Friday, it feels good to close out the week with a feeling of completion.
