About doing quick weekly reviews
A quote from DA:
"I can sometimes just in an emergency mode go and take 5 or 10 minutes and scan through everything, take a look backwards, take a look forwards, don't tell anybody but very often I do a very quick weekly review because I'm moving so fast that I really need to do enough review to let go so that nothing is going to pull up on me.
And there are times when this is a fabulous 2 hours of constructive rabbit trails."
I find that I do the same thing very often too.
I mean I would go and check the calendar, tickler, due dates, all projects and all actions. It takes 5-10 minutes for me because the system is electronic.
I might even do a little mindsweep and add some actions but I don't go into any detail while doing this quick review, I don't really make sure that all next actions are attractive and if all projects are attractive and such, I don't check project plans and I don't check Someday and etc. So it's just a quick scan to make sure than I'm not going to miss anything.
I personally don't really like to rely on just next actions, I like to scan through everything more often than once a week.
(In other words I do like to rely on just next actions but not for a long time like whole week)
Do you do this too?
Or do you really scan through everything only once a week during a long weekly review and then use only next action lists with reference/support materials for the rest of the week?
