      Hey Sid
      Your podcasts always help me get back on track. Thanks for inspiring me again.
      Here are my key learnings
      1. Work in cycles- weekly, quarterly annual. This helps to analyze the progress and check ” what’s working and what is not”

      2. Collect data from all the areas you are working on like social, webinars, etc. This gives ideas for future use.

      3. Put all the ideas & data on a white board, analyze, brainstorm

      4. Implement the information collected

      4. Review regularly to put a stop to ideas that don’t work & boost the ideas giving more returns

      1️⃣ Cycle- Working on 4 day work week template. Work quarterly, annually, monthly and weekly cycle.

      2️⃣ Data Gathering- Allow your community members to give you their feedbacks, ask questions, get some idea about challenges they have faced in there learning journey and collect all the data on a Google Sheet.

      3️⃣ Drawing Board- Look at all datas that you have got from your members and come out with some great ideas and action plans.

      4️⃣ Implementation- Once you have the data and once you make the decisions now you need to put that into action. Implementation can be done using internal teams and virtual teams..

      5️⃣ Break & Accelerate- You need to be aware on when to hit the breaks and to what tasks and when to hit the accelerator..
