The critical success factor to implement the approach

The 4th phase is reviewing all the things that have been captured, clarified and organised, but not yet done. (Doing = stage 5).  Having gained control of our busy world, stage 4 allows us to maintain control.  Naturally, we will carry out mini daily reviews, checking the calendar, tasks and so on.  But a deeper Weekly Review is also recommended.

Most productivity models include an element of a weekly approach (Steven Covey – Weekly Planning, David Allen – Weekly Review, Michael Hyatt – Weekly Preview).  


There is no one correct answer – and if it isn’t working at a certain time for you, try moving it to another slot.  Why not schedule it now?  Either put it into your calendar as a weekly recurring appointment or into your actions system as a weekly recurring task.

The slides below show how to ensure your Weekly Review is effective and what to include to ensure it is thorough.
