My Weekly Review

My Weekly Review


Table of contents

Do you sometimes feel like you're on a hamster wheel? When you manage to mentally look at your life from a different perspective, months have passed, thinking: "What did I do for the last year?"

What's a weekly review?

Past: A weekly review is designed to help us reflect on the previous week and recognize our past successes.

Future: You plan the upcoming week to support your larger vision in different areas of your life. Ideally, you already laid out a long-term 5- or 10-year map and can take action accordingly.

In my Weekly Review, I ask myself the following questions:

  • Which memorable moments did I collect this week?
  • What can I improve?
  • What new and unexpected things came up that I didn't plan?
  • What did I learn?
  • Which single area of life do I want to focus on next week? Which concrete steps can I take?
  • Sitting at my weekly review next week, which accomplishments do I want to reflect on?
  • What will I do this week, simply because it feels good and will recharge my batteries?
  • Am I overcomplicating things?

My Calendar: Fantastical

I use my calendar, Fantastical, as support to reflect on the last week.

Then, I put the most important things into my calendar, such as meetings at work, doctor's appointments, meetings with friends, etc. I also plan activities that make me feel good, like sports, reading a book, or cooking a good meal for myself.

The Weekly Review should not take longer than 20 minutes.
