[On Sundays, look back and] ask yourself what was good about each day and how it could have been better. Use five colored pencils to underline on the calendar, in the appropriate color, whatever you did in the previous week:
Black: I wouldn’t have done this.
Blue: I would have delegated this.
Red: I did this for health.
Green: I did this to grow.
Favorite color: I did this with family/friends, for fun.
After you’ve valued your past week, look at what’s coming in the next week, which should be written in pencil. Is your schedule humane? Are there things you should erase right now? Are important colors missing?
