103: Using a Weekly Review to Manage Your Time Well

If I could pick one thing that makes the most difference in my efforts to get things done, I would have to say it would be the weekly review.

I heard about the concept of a weekly review years ago. I’m not even sure where I first heard about it. But I’ve seen it implemented in various ways. If you were to Google or search Pinterest, you would probably find a lot of different weekly review methods.

For me, a weekly review encompasses looking over the past week to see what I actually accomplished. I compare those tasks that were completed to my overall plan for the month and week. This helps me to see what didn’t get done that I had planned to do that week. And it gives me an indication of where I am on the monthly projects I’ve set for myself.

It also helps me to refine and adjust the next week’s plan. I consider planning for the next week part of my weekly review.

When I don’t do a weekly review, the next week tends to be a free for all where I have no real structure to my days and things get done haphazardly. When I do a weekly review, I can assess what didn’t go well so I can create a better plan for next week.

In this episode, I share how I do the weekly review and the resources I use to help me take control of all the information that comes into my home and life.
