Question: Do you review your lists/@folders everyday in the AM, decide what you are going to do, and then leave them or constantly flip through them? I only ask because it’s 11 separate pages of lists (calls, computer, at home office, etc.) Is the weekly review when you update with checking things off as you go during the week?
David Allen: You need to review everything on your list as often as you need to, to feel comfortable about whatever you’re doing, and that you’re not missing something that you should be doing instead. As you start doing regularly weekly reviews, it shouldn’t take but a quick glance to know what you’re not doing. I’ve met some people who look thru their digital lists and make a 3×5 card hand-written list of the hottest items, and work from that during the day! Do whatever you need to do, to get to confidence about your choices.
