What does retrospective mean?​

Retrospective means looking back, contemplating on past events. 

retro means back, spect means look.

Need for retrospective:

Looking back at your past month, and thinking intently on the events that occurred helps one know what they are doing right, what they missed and what/how things could be done right. 

Retrospective brings in continuous improvement and aids in developing a strong ability to create solutions that will improve one's productivity.

Each month you will be asked 4 questions.

  1. How well did I do in my Spiritual discipline?

  2. Was I able to focus on things I needed to do during the past month?

  3. What went well?

  4. What could be improved?

 

You will provide star rating method for the first two questions. 

5 – Outstanding, 4– Exceeds Expectations, 3- Meets Expectations, 2- Needs Improvement, 1- Unacceptable

For questions 3 & 4,  you will look at the month that went by and take stock of what you did well and where you can improve. Remember this is an exercise that helps you analyze - what you did right, how you did it & what could be done better.

Doing a monthly retrospective builds a quick action plan on what needs to be continued or implemented next time and what should be avoided.

It is a great habit to develop no matter what you do.

Do it frequently.

You can liven up the page and conclude the retrospective session by placing the steward sticker from the last page of the planner.

Keep practicing to be a good steward.

Developing a quiet time habit and reading the Bible is a sure way to experience God's love for you. For your time with God, 2Miles planner provides you resources to develop a praying habit and a consistent Bible reading habit. 

You are here introduced to a 5 finger prayer method that will help you focus on others and pray for them first. It is not the only way to pray, but you may choose to include this model during your prayer time.  

The page explains the role each finger plays and is thus an easy way to know whom to pray for. Write down the names of people you will be praying for in the area given. You may choose to write with a pencil instead of a pen.

When the hands are folded, the thumb is the closest finger to your heart. Pray for those closest to you, your loved ones.

Pointer finger represents people who point you in the right direction; your teachers, and other leaders in your life. Pray that they will operate in God-given wisdom and will have support of fellow believers too. (You can include even your children's teachers). 

Middle finger is the tallest finger in our hand. They represent people who stand tall for us, lead us; those in government (our President, Prime Minister, military leader etc), church & workplace leadership. Pray for guidance and wisdom. 

Ring finger is known to be the weakest finger. Remember to pray for those who are sick, poor, in pain, trouble. 

Little finger represents us. Pray for ourselves and our own needs.

Your prayers are important.

Next you are introduced to a Bible reading plan.

You are free to choose your existing reading plan or the chronological Bible reading plan present in this planner.
