The Weakly Review

I’ve been working with David Allen’s workflow management system (Getting Things Done) now for about a year and a half. One of the most important disciplines in the system is called the Weekly Review. This is also the most difficult of the disciplines for most users. I had two related thought occur to me in the shower this morning:

It’s called a ‘Weekly Review’, not a “Weakly Review’.

and

7 days without a review makes one weak.

On the second one, was inspired by a contemporary Christian proverb, “7 days without prayer makes one weak.” Of course, that’s true as well.

    Hmmm…an interesting way to put this! Thanks for a different spin; “I’m reviewing…I’m reviewing!”
