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.
