My Favorite Things: the 10Q questionnaire

How 10Q Works

I’ve done this every year for five years now. It’s a great way to reflect on the past year. You answer ten questions over ten days (questions like “Describe a significant experience that has happened in the past year. How did it affect you?”), and then they get saved for a year. Next year, the folks from 10Q email you last year’s answers. You can’t access the questions during the year (unless you save them somewhere else), and I find that it’s usually a pleasant surprise to discover what my answers were last year. Sometimes it’s encouraging, sometimes it’s a reminder that I’ve had the same stupid goals for five years and haven’t made progress, but it’s always interesting.  It’s a kind of time capsule, and I’ve really enjoyed it.

Interesting side note: it’s organized around the Jewish calendar. Apparently there are 10 days between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur that are supposed to be for reflection, and this is kind of a digital way to do that. I like how it usually coincides with the start of the school year.
