Have been troubled habitualizing the Weekly Review, think the cause may be too many systems .. help!
My system currently looks like the following:
Lots of email both at work & home; reference files on both PC's Outlooks.
Lots of email-related actions; "action context" folders in Outlook email for "Projects", mini project "Engagements", "Emails to Answer", and "Waiting For".
This all makes processing those thousand or so emails per week reasonably efficient (drag&drop).
Lots of other context actions, so have the suggested Outlook Tasks contexts (with PDA etc.) Lots of work "on the go". This works better in some contexts than others (eg works poorly for PC-based tasks).
Lots of reference:
- Paper file cabinet at office
- Paper file cabinet at home
- Reference Emails, sorted into folders in Outlook (as noted above, both home and work)
- Work Reference Files on Work PC "My Documents"
- Personal Reference Files on Home PC "My Documents"
Have been doing the rest of GTD for a year now with some benefit; seek the real benefits of including Weekly Review.
Do I have too many systems relative to those of you who have successfully installed the Weekly Review habit into your routine? Has anyone succeeded with that habit with so many systems in play, or is my first priority to simplify things?
