How to notice improvement opportunities

Today, create a 5-minute meeting in your calendar.

Make it a recurring meeting at 4:55 PM every workday. You are meeting only with yourself.

For 5 minutes, reflect on the day and ask: “What could we do differently to improve our culture?”

Chances are, you won’t find an answer to that question. It’s not the point of the meeting. The point of the meeting is to build a habit of asking that question.

Within a few weeks, you will start noticing, in the middle of the day, things that you could do better. You will know that you have time at the end of the day to reflect on them. A few more weeks and you won’t need the meeting at all. You will have become the type of person who effortlessly notices ways to improve your workplace culture.
