Retrospectives are critical in college, whether you're facing disappointments in academics or career, falling-outs or breakups, the end of a long semester/job, or particularly tumultuous eras of life. In this extremely simple template, retrospectives ("retros") are organized by year, each with its own page; each page provides a space in which to dig into how and why your significant life events have shaped you.

Each page is also organized with #headers so you can use the "Table of contents" feature (/ + table of contents) to get a bird’s eye view of each page. Additionally, looking at your Retros page is always a reminder that if you made it through those days, you can make it through these :)

9Software Development Retrospective

The best template to run a retrospective in notion. It leverages formulas to show only enough information about how many people agree with or want to discuss a subject.

This board has two steps: 1) In the first one, you can add cards and vote without being influenced by other people's votes. 2) In the second step, you can see a summary of how many people voted to agree or discuss without seeing who it was. This helps remove bias when discussing a card.

You can always open the card and see who voted, but you can choose not to. Anonymity is not the goal of this board.
