A GTDer asked David Allen: Whenever I thoroughly complete the weekly review I feel as if a weight is lifted. This is interesting because very few (if any) “action items” are completed with the weekly review. Do you have any explanation or insight on why the weekly review makes one feel like the weight is lifted?
David: Weight is lifted because the weekly review allows you to clarify and renegotiate all your agreements with yourself. That simple. Negative stress usually occurs because of inner conflict that can only be resolved with conscious dialogue with yourself and decisions made that resolve the discrepancies (you can’t do everything at once.) I applaud your discipline to discover this!
