I figured that Monday is the perfect time to review my week. I have a fresh outlook and high energy because of the weekend break. I always try to follow this one important rule: Don’t end the week with nothing. If I get to accomplish a single important thing every week, I consider it a big win. What are my wins this week? What needs improvement?
Another important part of my reviews is to plan my upcoming week. What do I need to look out for? What do I want to accomplish?
Reviews easily takes 1-2 hours to do. Despite the hours it takes, I see it as worth the time because it helps me realign whatever am I doing now to the big picture I want to be in. It helps me see if I am at the right direction or am I straying away.
Right questions helps me focus on the right things. Currently, the questions I ask myself during reviews are:
- How was your week?
- What are you proud of this week?
- What needs improvement?
- Do not end the week with nothing. What’s the single most important thing you need to accomplish next week?
- What’s upcoming this week? What do I need to look out for?
- What else do you plan to accomplish next week?
