Weekly Planning Checklist

  • Go through your active projects and goals and ask: what needs to happen next? Block the time required to do that work on your calendar. (Your big rocks)
  • Review your appointments for next week and make sure they are still happening
  • Review your “Next Week” tasks to make sure they still need to be done next week and if they do, move them to your This Week folder and add a date.
  • Do a final review of your calendar to make sure you have enough space for the unknowns.

  • Task management. This one is most commonly taught and includes systems like Getting Things Done.
  • Knowledge management. This is embodied in systems like productivity educator Tiago Forte's Building a Second Brain.
