In my understanding, the weekly review is related to proper decision making in the following sense: What the weekly review does is rescue me from the need to make sure I make a "perfect" plan. I can make a front end decision on a)whether or not I want to do this or not (i.e. Project or S/M) and then b)when I can/want to get it done. But, I get to revise my decision every week if I need to, or if I made a poor decision up front. Since this is possible, I do not need to plan much farther than a week in advance in any kind of detail, I just need to determine the "general direction." As long as I am aware of my projects, I can trust my judgement about what needs to be worked on this week, in the same way I can do that on a day to day and moment to moment basis. It is the up front decision coupled with the regular review that helps me make the system work.
Looking at 200 (213 now) todos every day and wondering what to do next is not working very well. I cant rely on my "gut instinct"
Many months ago, in this forum , someone suggested a method for weeding out and priorizing a todos list that was out of control, maybe it works for you.
For each todo, ask yourself what will happen if that action is not done :
1) A serious problem.
2) No immediate consequence,
3) Nothing will happen.
Make a todo list with all number 1 actions, and DO IT!
Cross out all or most of your number 3 items.
The remaining list should be renumbered 1,2,3. And so on.
This method is useful for chronic procastinators also.
Hope it helps.
