A personal retrospective is a regularly practiced ritual, during which you take time and think about yourself. You reflect on what happened and what is currently happening in your life. You try to learn from these experiences and derive new goals and insights for yourself.
To do a personal retrospective you typically have a set of exercises you do. These exercises help you to find the information and extract knowledge and understanding from them.
