Here are the questions we asked to ourselves after the end of the day:
- What did you enjoy the most today?
- What would you like to change tomorrow?
- Is there something slowing you down?
- our collective planning that resulted in a really productive session of external communications (+1)
- learning about the thick+thin data (+2)
- discovering that tech ethnography is a thing
- finding our way through survey questions
- watching Tricia Wang TedTalk
- cooking at home for lunch (+1)
- writing emails to keep stakeholders up to date
- getting in touch with new people and getting prompt responses
- when we discarded writing questions so as we avoid putting our bias in the survey prototype
- the aha moment on the way back from the cafe, which combines the newly discovered thick data ethnography process and quantitative data
- communicate visually a bit more
- try to balance caveats and criticism with counter offers
- to reflect more before snapping a prompt and harsh comment
- to ask “are we done yet?” when I feel lost instead of backtracking the conversation
- felt uncomfortable about my communication when we decided not to write the questions–we did not end up doing what we planned; wrapping up the session will help next time
Slowing me down
- ability to communicate ideas clearly
- the lack of deep sleep of the previous days
- the feeling of time going quickly
