Items of Note
I had planned on putting out a series of articles on productivity for the end of the year. At first I was just going to update three old articles already on my website. I mean, how hard can it be, right?

I did, however, make some progress. The first article in the series is now live. And I posted a thoughtful exercise to help you plan strategically for the year ahead. It's a short set of questions that are perfect for clarifying where you are, where you want to go, and how you might get there.
