    IF SO ID LOVE TO SHARE SYSTEMS
    I AM FAMILIAR WITH THE METHODOLOGY
    NOT CARRIED OUT A SATISFACTORY WEEKLY REVIEW, AS YET
    THIS IS DUE TO A LARGE PROJECT WHICH IS CLOGGING UP
    OR SHOULD I SAY MY INABILITY TO FILTER IT INTO THE SYSTEM
    HAS CAUSED ME TO SEEK ANSWERS ...

    TWO MINDS ARE BETTER THAN ONE :):)

    BEST WISHES TO ALL

    Not based near you (I'm in denmark) but saw you have put off the weekly review due to a big project..
    A 2 hour review of a 40 hour week = 5% of your work week..

    I think everyone that has ever done a full review will say its worth more than the time spend, even if no its 5%!
    Try to fit it in your schedule you won't regret it.. :D

    Historically speaking: that was never an issue!

    I live in Cambridge, UK. Weekly review is my weakness too. I guess I get overwhelmed just by thinking of how much I've to think about when I do the weekly review.

    Any suggestions/tips from Senior GTDers?

    Thank you for your input ssksogaard.
    I will attempt a full weekly review of what I have so far!
    Previous attempts have found me tapering off into non-review type actions
    So determined to this time around
    - I shall comment how I got on.

    I too believe distance aught not be a factor

    Part of my problem is motivation to face it.
    I wonder if you’re up for being my wkly review “gym partner” ?


    I aim to stick to 10 mins per section (hardly enough time)
    Getting a feel for the process > turning it into a habit.


    If your available anytime after 15:00hrs this Sunday 11th Nov?

    Please get in touch


    Many thanks all

    Hey, I am based in London. If you ever come down here we can meet and share some ideas on GTD if you are up for it.

    The way I do the weekly review at the moment is not on weekly basis but on demand. Like doing the laundry. When I have a big enough batch of clothes to wash, I wash them together. I do not do it too early because the washing machine will be empty and it is waste of resources, but if I wait for too long it will be a mess - no clothes to wear and will not fit them all in the machine for one washing. I treat clearing my inbasket and reorganizing my projects the same way. When I feel I have collected a decent amount to organize I simply put next actions like "Clear my inbox", "Update my projects folder", "Update my next actions folder" etc. Then I treat them like normal actions that I do whenever I am have the time. This seems to work for me better.

    I hope it helps.

    Stan.

    @Carlos Just saw your message. I have been out for most of the weekend and I won't be doing the Weekly Review now. Maybe I will just scan through all the contexts to get current and that's about it.

    @Stan It's a good idea for a meetup if I'm around LDN area.
