The weekly review

The weekly review

It’s dedicated time to think about the past week, reflect on what went well and what didn’t, and plan for the week ahead. 

It’s a chance to get aligned with your goals and ensure that the work you’re doing on a daily basis is helping you reach them

The 3 parts of a weekly review

  • Get Clear: process all your loose-ends.
  • Get Current: make sure all your items are up to date.
  • Get Creative: come up with new ideas to improve how you live and work.

Benefits of weekly reviews

  • You gain an objective view of the week: a weekly review forces you to practice intention by taking time to pause and reflect as you consider what you did versus what you planned to do.
  • You become proactive in planning: a weekly review isn’t only a retrospective, but a prospective too. It lets you run through the upcoming Monday to Friday proactively.

Completing your weekly review

  • Choose your weekly review day, time, and place: Consistency will keep you on track when motivation won’t. Keep your weekly review at the same time on the same day every week.
  • Create your weekly review checklist: Have a checklist handy that details exactly what you’ll go through during your weekly review.

Going through your weekly review

  • Be objective: Try your best to take an unbiased look at your week and lean on objective measures of your performance for the week.
  • Be efficient: Move from one checklist item to the next without lingering too long in any one area.
  • Be kind: Instead of beating yourself up about a bad week, gently reflect on what went wrong and plan for a more productive week ahead.

Develop a set of questions

...  to ask yourself during your weekly review:

  • How do I feel I did this week overall?
  • What enabled me to reach my goals this week?
  • Has anything stopped me from reaching my goals this week?
  • How can I improve for next week?
  • What can I do next week that will set me up for my long-term goals?

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
