  • Weekly review in electronic form

    Does anyone have an electronic version of the weekly review? e.g. as text or a Word document, to save me having to type it all into my Palm

    I'm sure it used to be on the website, but (I guess) it was removed once they started selling the cheklists on laminated card!

         - Review the Incompletion Triggers List
        
        -------------------
        Note that everything down to the Palm Desktop piece is
        normally done everyday and is just part of getting
        ready for the weekly review and not actually part of
        the review itself.

        30,000' - 50,000' and the incompletion triggers list
        is typically only done once a month or so.

        I hope this helps someone!

          Thanks for sharing your list Ricky!

          I'd love to see your work list too. Of course I really need to just start doing rather than thinking about doing!

            My Weekly Home Review list is a little more comprehensive than my Weekly Work Review list. I think that you will get more out of this one.

            I do two separate reviews, and have two separate lists, becuase I have to keep my full-time job very separate from everything else. I also have two side businesses (as seen in my 20,000' section). I work full-time as a web developer for a large credit union and I also have a side business doing web development. I have to make sure to avoid potential conflicts of interest at all costs.

            A couple more explanations: I use my computer's desktop for temporary file storage, hence the instruction to "delete old icons from desktop". This is usually done only weekly and not daily.

            My other categories are @Work, @WorkProjects, and @WorkWaiting. I use DateBk5 and primarily use my Palm lists as I am "doing" work. I use DateBk5's filters to view special lists for @yard, @palm, @laptop, @sunday, @desktop, and @tv inside my @Home list.

            I got the four "Questions" from Ready for Anything. They have proven incredibly valuable to answer during the weekly review. I haven't seen anyone else use them regularly except myself but they really provide a needed point of view.

            For the 20,000' staff meeting I actually imagine myself as CEO and asking my "Manager of Spirituality" if everything is going as he feels is needed. I'll even have a conversation in my mind with him. When we are done I move on to my "Manager of Marriage" and repeat the process. This little bit of creativity has freed me up a great deal to look at these areas of focus in a new light.

            Good luck with your own!
