Still working on Weekly Review
Does anyone have any suggestions about getting into Weekly Reviews in a way that makes it stick? This has become more difficult to pull off than I imagined! I need some help here. I thought I had it down and I continue to get interrupted and what I do actually do ends up being piecemeal...different times of the week and is not particularly complete. Suggestions?
What took me so long with calendar
I decided to go out a month and clicked through my palm day by day. I'm very good at keeping my hard landscape clean and current so there are only appointments/meetings. Sometimes I would run across a meeting and decide I had to do some work to prepare for that meeting. I would enter that into my next actions or if multi-step; create a project with at least one next action.

All in all, there were 27 meetings, two trips out of town(3day and 2day), and one visitor to host. It's hard me to believe I took three hours on this and maybe I'm forgetting other things I did like run to the copier, but I'm pretty sure I stayed focused.
Thanks for any tips.
I find that of all the GTD system the "weekly review" is the hardest part to crack.
I find that of all the GTD system the "weekly review" is the hardest part to crack. I found myself procrastinating on it for a long time cause I knew it was a tough one. Yesterday I think I made some progress, but not exactly with the "weekly review" or did I ?
I decided to re-write and re-define (again!) my projects as completed outcomes, that's tough enough on some projects. Then I focused on just one of them and found that I made great progress in laying out the basic plan of a project that's been dinging my bell for months! This took up most of my day but for the project it is successful proggress, for the weekly review well it did not get finished. Now I have this same situation for most my other projects which is why the "weekly review" kind sends my brain numb!
Now should I crack on with the project that I hjave made progress on or look at the next project on my list and do the same for that?
This whole system sounds great, and what I have applied so far makes a hell of a difference to "what I get done" but making this "weekly review" part actually work is challenging to say the least.
