Why does my Weekly Review take 4-6 hours?
New to GTD. I would like some feedback on my weekly review checklist. If I have a hard stop after 90 mins on the WR, I find I have only done about 3-4 items on this WR checklist. If, as I have done, allowed the entire day for the WR I can get to the bottom. Obviously this takes some practice. But I am posting my checklist here to see if you can give me some feedback. I am a small business owner: one employee, one admin assistant who comes in 4 hours one night per week. Anything she cannot do in one evening I have to do. Thanks for your comments.
Use the checklist published in the GTD book.
It is not the GTD Weekly Review checklist. Use the checklist published in the GTD book.
Thank you...changes are ahead
Ok, this gives me some things to think about. Thank you all.
"Mind sweeps, for example, not only can take a lot of time, but a lot of mental energy because of the change of activity, from wr and back. But scheduling them takes a moment"
I have to admit, I have been more vacuuming than sweeping. Either I vacuum a topic completely and then the time is up, or I just skip the sweep and move on to the next item on the list. But scheduling a mind sweep is doable, thanks.
"The WR is not the time to catch up and DO the things on your action lists,"
A constant battle for me, really. I found a 2 minute timer online and have started using it. I am amazed by what things take LONGER than 2 mins.
As with most things worth doing in life, I am sure it will improve with practice.
