The Power of the Weekly Review

Date: Thursday, November 19, 2015 by GTD Times Staff

avatar100138_0The Weekly Review has meant so much to me. It is the difference between having my life in my own hands or not. I realized that the work I was doing didn’t make me happy. I made a project of it and I made the commitment to myself that I would make one step every week, to find out what talents I have, which things I like to do, what lifestyle I would like to have, and which job will fit in all of that. Doing the Weekly Review helped remind me to do at least one step every week. I got so much value from GTD that I want other young professionals to also learn and know it, so I became a Certified GTD Trainer. And now I can do what I am so passionate about!

    I have been looking to immerse myself more into GTD and David Allen’s work-life management philosophy/system. I have been inspired since recently reading the book “Ready for Anything” and have made quite a few changes with significant results. But I’d like to do a course or learn and practice even more.
    The “Events” page on the website seems to indicate that there are no public courses available in Toronto, Canada. Also, I checked the Certified GTD Trainer link mentioned in your story above and it says it is not available for individual consultants. How could I learn more from here in Toronto? Any information or help is appreciated.

      Hi Tina,

      It’s great to hear that you’ve had significant results already.

      We’re working on the public courses schedule for February through April, and anticipate having it posted on the Events page soon. We’re considering Toronto or Montreal, but even if we don’t have a course there, we’ll have something not too far from you, in Boston, New York, or Philadelphia.

    Hi – weekly review has helped me immensely to stay on track.

    Every month or quarter or year end I would like to get a picture of long-term goals (horizons in Dave’s words) and how I need to adapt.

    Can you share best practices/tools possibly with example?
