My Weekly Review


Table of contents

Do you sometimes feel like you're on a hamster wheel? When you manage to step out, months have passed, and you think: "What have I been doing for the last half year?"

What is a Weekly Review?

A weekly review is designed to help us reflect on the previous week and recognize our past successes. It also lets you plan the next steps for the coming week to support your larger vision and areas of your life.

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

  • What great things did I accomplish this week?
  • What can I improve?
  • What new and unexpected things came up that I didn't plan?
  • What essential things did I learn?
  • What do I want to have done by next Sunday?
  • What will I do this week, simply because it is good for me?

I usually use my calendar 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.

That's it. The Weekly Review should not take longer than 20 minutes.
