Another important aspect of the GTD process is the ‘Review’ phase. This is where we do a periodical audit of our complete GTD system going through all the action items captured, making it current by adding what all is not captured yet, and planning for the week ahead.
What to review?
- Physical items: post its, memos, articles, receipts, letters, notes, manuals, supplies, decorations, utilities, appliances, areas/places to be cleaned/organized, CDs, DVDs, tapes, camera, closets, tools, luggage, computers, basically any physical item which might have an action assigned to it.
- From the psyche: projects – stalled/to be started/changed course, hobbies, travel, new things to do, R&D about stuff, bill payments, etc.
- About People: commitments/events related to spouse, children, family, boss, colleagues; appointments & social/cultural events.
