If you bought one of those normal planners, they often start with a few pages that you don’t use. There’s a map, airport abbreviations, etc. So I decided to paste a stationary paper on one of those pages and on top I wrote “Accomplishments 2017”. So by the end of the year, I’ll remember what I did right or if I did anything at all. If any of them are worth noting in my resume, I can put them in. I also plan on updating my LinkedIn, which has been rotting for years.
I did this because when I was reflecting on 2016, I almost forgot about some of my really important achievements like getting into my first art writing residency. I can’t believe I had to think long and hard before I remembered that one. So to avoid these things, I start noting down my achievements.
