Performing Weekly Reviews with OmniFocus 2 for Mac

Performing a review of OmniFocus about once a week will help ensure that your database is an accurate and up-to-date reflection of your life.

OmniFocus 3

The strategy for performing Weekly Reviews in OmniFocus 3 is essentially the same as it was in OmniFocus 2.

A core component of David Allen’s Getting Things Done® (GTD®) approach is the Weekly Review. To quote David Allen, “the Weekly Review is the time to gather and process all your stuff, review your system, update your lists and get clean, clear, current and complete.”

If OmniFocus gets out of date or is missing crucial pieces, the tendency is to stop using it and instead to try to keep track of things in your head. Taking the time to regularly review your system pays dividends and builds trust in your system. In this video you’ll learn:

  • How to create a Weekly Review project that automatically repeats a week after it’s complete.
  • How to break the review down into manageable actions.
  • How to use OmniFocus’ built-in Review feature as part of your Weekly Review.
