I have a number of strategies for remembering what I work on, accomplish, learn, etc. but I recently came across Julia Evans’ blog post on brag documents and it really resonated. I wanted to store a blank template here so that I could keep track of my own - similar to my annual reviews.

For guidance on what to put into each section, see Julia Evans’ appendix.
