The Owl and The Beetle
Another Tuesday Dispatch is in, and another year is out!
Wow, thank you so much for being such a fantastic community of readers. Every week I am so happy to receive all of your replies, feedback, and cheers. I love it so much!
As you may have noticed, I started experimenting with the premium content of this newsletter. The purpose is to make it more valuable in the short term and more sustainable in the long term.
As usual, if there's any feedback you'd like to share, do not hold back!
This week we learn about personal annual reviews, kindness, and resignations. As well as what sound is and how to avoid common passwords.
The premium content includes the entry "Decide Fast, Revert Faster" from Luca's Playbook and my personal annual review of 2022.
Let's get going!

The Personal Annual Review
A personal annual review can be an exciting and valuable way to reflect on the past year and assess your progress and achievements. It allows you to take stock of your accomplishments and identify areas for improvement or growth. A personal annual review can also help you set goals and plan for the future and can be a helpful tool for self-reflection and self-improvement.
Here you can find a great personal annual review template.
If you are interested in my personal review for 2022, you can find my answers at the end of this issue as part of the premium content. Give it try; you can cancel anytime, no hard feelings!
Kindness Can Have Unexpectedly Positive Consequences
Kindness positively impacts ourselves and others by fostering feelings of happiness, gratitude, and connection.
When we act kindly towards others, it can improve our mental and emotional well-being and the well-being of those around us.
In addition, kindness can help to build trust and strengthen relationships, as it demonstrates a genuine concern for the well-being of others.
By making a conscious effort to be kind, we can create a ripple effect of positivity that can benefit both ourselves and those in our community and beyond.

Resignations happen in a moment, not when you declare, “I’m resigning.”
The moment happened a long time ago when you received a random email from a good friend who asked, “I know you’re really happy with your current gig because you’ve been raving about it for a year, but would you like to come visit Our Company? No commitment. Just coffee.”
Fantastic article; don't miss it!
