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.
