TILTW: Get organised, get feedback, get fat

Things I liked this week included the Bullet Journal, tips for a having a good sprint review and gingerbread muffins.

The Bullet Journal

It looks like this has been around for a good few years – googling returned a zillion results – but I’ve just stumbled across it this week while searching for an organisation method for my work notebook. I think I’ll give it a shot for a couple of months and see whether it works for me. By chance my notebook of choice – the Leuchtturm1917 medium hardcover dot grid – is perfect for it too.

It’s meant to be, right?

Sprint review tips for product owners – Roman Pichler

Relatively recently I started a new job as a Product Manager with zero experience of the role (and zero training offered).

Definitely worth a read for anyone in a similar position.

Gingerbread muffins
Nom nom nom…

It’s nearly Christmas and, for me, that means only one thing – the return of the gorgeous, gooey gingerbread muffin at Costa. I swear this one item alone is responsible for the extra half a stone I usually put on at this time of year.

Also worth trying from the same shop, the pigs in blankets toasted panini. Sheer heaven!
