Review Checklists

January 20, 2015

Review, reflection, and refinement should be part of your routine. I’m a loose follower of GTD and a heavy user of Things (though I don’t always use it in the way they suggest), but I’ve struggled to make reviews part of my routine. I made these checklists to lower the barrier of entry. In addition, I’ve created Beeminder goals to keep me on track.

Unlike most blog posts, this is a living document. I expect it to change. When It does, I plan to make notes of the changes at the bottom.

Daily Review

Weekly Review

Monthly Review

Annual Review


  1. Added “What went well” and “didn’t” checkpoints. Added backlog reviews.
  2. Added calendar check. Changed email process from keeping actionable to creating actions.
