Performing regular reviews is key to having a productivity system that is reliable, useful, and trusted. This practice also provides the opportunity to rise above the day-to-day tasks and to look at the big picture of your life and work. Ultimately, reviews help ensure that the projects and actions you’ve defined are taking you down a productive path.

Overview of the LIVE Session

If you’re not currently performing regular reviews, this session is designed to help you get started. And if you do have a review practice, what you’ll learn will support you in taking your reviews to the next level.

We’ll cover the full gamut of review frequencies, including daily reviews that help keep your system aligned on a day-to-day basis, weekly reviews that give you the opportunity to get “clear, current, and creative” (to use David Allen’s terms), and monthly, quarterly, and annual reviews designed to help you navigate the bigger picture of your life and work.

What You’ll Learn

Attend the live session and learn:

  • Why reviews are so important and the consequences of not doing regular reviews.
  • Strategies for getting into the habit of performing regular reviews and common pitfalls to watch out for.
  • How to ensure that all elements of your system, including both physical and digital inboxes, are included in your regular reviews.
  • Why it’s so important to review your calendar on a regular basis and how OmniFocus can help you establish this habit.
  • How to use self-completing, repeating projects in OmniFocus that support you in systematically performing reviews.
  • What to include in daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, and annual review projects.
  • Guidelines for deciding what to include in repeating review projects and what to make a repeating action within a single action list.
  • How to make effective use of OmniFocus’ built-in Review perspective.
  • How to update the “Next Review” dates in OmniFocus so that they align with a specific day of the week or month.
  • How to use custom perspectives to make your reviews more efficient and accurate and to help ensure that you don’t become overcommitted.
  • How to use tools such as Asana, TrelloNotion, and Evernote alongside OmniFocus to monitor the bigger picture of your life and work.
  • How to use reviews as an opportunity to tap into your creativity, with some help from your someday/maybe lists.
  • And more…
