I was crafting this checklist for my personal use, and then I found myself thinking: why should’nt I share this useful handful of bullets with my readers? So here we are, find below an useful checklist for your weekly review. The checklist is derived directly from the official GTD book by our great friend David Allen. The greatest quality of the checklist is the minimalist approach: just what you really need to read is written within each point, so that you get through your review as quick as possible. Enjoy!
Weekly Review Checklist for GTD
look for sleeping actions within SMS, mail, backpack, notes and whatever. collect everything into your inbox.
look for previous and next weeks within your calendar, any sleeping action out there?
process your just-feeded inbox, get it empty!
check all actions you completed during past week and you didn’t checked off because you were, as usual, in a rush
look at your waiting for list: any one to followup?
look at your active projects: is there at least one next action in the proper list for each one of them?
look at your someday/maybe list: had come the time to embrace any parked project/action?
I personally use this checklist every Saturday morning and we can therefore give it for tested, nevertheless I am here to listen to every suggestion of improvement. You can download here below a PDF version of the checklist for your convenience.
