HI! I have promised show notes, so here we go!
Episode #2 is out! It’s 19 minutes long and a detailed account of my current weekly review process, with plenty of ideas for customization!
Here is a pic of the Weekly Review checklist that I refer to in the episode:
(Sorry there’s some ghosting from a list written on the other side – small downside of the Tomoe River paper that makes up my accessory notebook! Likely in the future I will just write this out on a back page of my bullet journal.)
Here is a shot of my Weekly Goals Page (the end product of sorts of the review) and my current Calendar Landscape (in a Jibun Techo – not mentioned on the podcast episode because I didn’t yet have it at the time fo recording):
Currently I’m using Apple Notes for my projects lists (just so easy & available everywhere for me) but paper for all of my goals lists (year / quintile / monthly / weekly / daily!). This suits me – I find paper projects lists to get kind of unwieldy and I like to be able to clean them up and update them over time. I know others love Trello, Cozi, Google Keep, Evernote — there are so many! Please share if you have a great way of keeping projects lists. I am fascinated by how people collect / sort this kind of data.
I also have to admit that #4 (empty inboxes) does not always happen every week! I tend to empty my work inboxes (both clinical + email) every Friday, but my personal one is slightly more sporadic. I do typically clean it out entirely every 7-10 days, though.
#7 is much less important during the pandemic because . . . no one is going anywhere. But if I were, I would make sure Josh knew. ALSO our whiteboards are on hiatus because G kept scribbling on them, rendering them useless. I mean . . who can blame her? But still. Luckily, there isn’t much that needs to go up there now! Simple times, I guess.
Okay! It’s 7 am and I am happy to say that I have completed my own Weekly Review this morning. It took about ~45 min total (that included Monday’s daily plan, too). I find this ritual very worth it for me and currently do it on my workout rest day, so I have a longer early morning time slot.
