Quick question: According to David Allen, what is the “critical success factor” in making your GTD practice stick?
Answer: The Weekly Review
In our fast moving times, it is very important to step away from the daily grind to get perspective on your work, goals, and mission. The Weekly Review is that opportunity. The Review is typically done on the last day of the work week in order to reflect on your calendar, tie up loose ends, and make sure the everything that has your attention is captured for processing. I know from my own personal experience that whenever I miss a Weekly Review, there is a feeling of incompleteness. The Weekly Review is an excellent way to move into a stress free weekend.
