PINKCAST 4.26

Here’s Peter Drucker’s simple method for improving your performance.

In the last 20 years of writing about business, I’ve often dealt with a major annoyance: I’ll come up with what I’m convinced is a mind-shattering, era-defining idea — only to discover that Peter Drucker had the idea a few decades ago.

Drucker was consistently astute about the present and prescient about the future. A true legend.

Among other breakthroughs, he pioneered the concept of “managing oneself” — which was as novel in the 1980’s as it is commonplace in the 2020’s. And perhaps my favorite Drucker self-management technique is “feedback analysis,” which involves writing down your expectations today to improve your performance tomorrow.

It’s all explained in the latest Pinkcast. You can watch the 174-second video by clicking the link below. After you’ve seen the video, come back here and answer the questions below.
