The most important system you can build into your life for personal growth and productivity.
Inspired by David Allen’s Getting Things Done, the weekly review is a time to reflect on different levels and reset for the next week. Specifically, you:
- Clear papers from your bag and desk
- Look over your calendar
- Review your work to do list
- Review other lists like personal to dos, shopping list, etc
- Reflect on your long term goals
It may seem like a lot, but once you start you’ll quickly forget how you ever managed without it.
First, pick a day/time of the week that you think you can stick to. I do Friday mornings since I’m a morning person and it works fairly well with my schedule.
To make it a satisfying experience and hold myself accountable, I use an app called Streaks.
Then when you do your weekly review, each goal will light up when you complete it. If you miss a week, the count will start over at 1.
