December 2021

Doc the halls.
We began 2021 by encouraging you to choose rituals over resolutions, and we’re ending the year with the same theme. Aspiring to change is easy. Finding the right rituals to turn aspiration into action is not. So we’re also inviting you to lean on the wisdom of our maker community, starting with these insights to help you ring in 2022 feeling rested and renewed.
And if you need personalized help, our are happy to build a doc or template for your unique ritual.
The Docket is our version of the staff picks shelf at your local bookstore. Every month, we recommend published docs that we’ve personally read, loved, and copied. See past installments

From Katie, Brand: There are endless blog posts and LinkedIn calls to action about the importance of work/life balance, but they’re always lacking a practical, realistic way to approach it. Arianna Huffington’s Reset doc digs into the science to come up with an effective solution that teams can easily make into a regular ritual. p.s. If you missed Ms. Huffington sharing the origin story and success of Reset at Block Party 2021, it’s absolutely .

From Ezeugo, Engineering: As someone who spends a ton of time tracking personal productivity, I’m well aware that energy directly correlates to my ability to get things done. What I didn’t realize is that intentionally taking breaks between tasks leads to consistency. This doc has given me a new ability to quantify and visualize my energy fluctuations while also documenting the serendipity of life. And I’m learning to actually schedule a recharge, a ritual that is giving me much-needed reflection time.

From Ben, Growth: In today’s age of distributed and hybrid teams, making authentic connections takes effort and intentionality. Nobody wants to stay on that Zoom call longer than they have to, but many of us no longer have access to the post-meeting smalltalk that’s so easy in a physical office. Padma’s doc recreates the office watercooler, but on Slack and with specific prompts that encourage everyone to participate. If you have a spare minute between meetings today, I highly recommend spending it on your very own virtual fika.

From Haley, Customers: We’re all busy, and sometimes it’s easier to just keep our heads down. But inter-team communication can mean the difference between meeting your goals or pushing them out to next quarter. This daily check-in doc is a quick and easy way for your team to track their plans for the day, reflect on their accomplishments of yesterday, and ask for help when it’s needed. For those team members who appreciate being reminded to check-in — myself included — this doc has that, too. The best part: all check-ins are automatically archived, making retrospectives a breeze. Take the guesswork out of teamwork, and bring the team back together!
