In This Episode…
For some reason yesterday I didn’t record a podcast episode. I don’t know why. In today’s episode I conduct a postmortem on what happened to see if I can find the cause and avoid it happening again.
Episode Show Notes…
00:48 – Yesterday was Friday the 13th and for some reason I did’t record an episode of the podcast, despite it being a daily goal. Why?
00:54 – Well I only realised first thing this morning when I woke up and felt something wasn’t right – then it hit me.
01:17 – Initially I was more than annoyed with myself. Then I let that subside to disappointment.
02:04 – When exploring why I had failed to do something I have been on task and doing for so long every day, I could not pinpoint any particular reason.
02:33 – At first I tracked back over the day to see if there was anything that got in the way.
02:50 – It was a busy day but nothing stood out.
03:47 – Shockingly I even had a call with an old business partner and I spent some time telling him about the podcast!
03:54 – Before beating myself up, I should positively reinforce the fact I have only missed two episodes out of 165 – not a bad strike rate – nearly 99% of the time.
04:20 – When I look at my systems, I noticed I did not have doing the podcast on my daily plan for some reason. It was on my Kanban board but for some reason I missed it.
04:54 – A good question to ask is what am I going to do in the future so this does not happen again?
05:00 – The obvious answer is to ensure it goes on my daily plan
