Give Yourself a Win
One challenge of implementing GTD is not giving yourself credit for what you've done right!
Go to the Free Articles section and download The Weekly Review which lists each step of that process.
Now the easy part, set aside just 30 minutes for a complete Weekly Review. Budget 10 minutes for each of the three sections.
Spend 10 minutes on each section. If you can’t complete all the steps in the allotted time then stop at 10 minutes and put unfinished items as next actions into your system and move to the next section.
For example if you know processing e-mail to zero will take 20 minutes then don’t bother doing it during your Review. Add, “Process e-mail in to zero” to your @ Computer list and move on.
In 30 minutes you’ve done a real Weekly Review including the new items on your next actions lists. Then allocate more time as you gain comfort and confidence in the process.
I used this idea (thanks to Meg Edwards) to get on the Weekly Review bandwagon of actually doing them. It works!
How did you capture that thought?
