💡 Templates I use to review my day, week and quarter

Today is Friday (and we’re doing Fridays differently at Nozbe) and it’s time for my weekly review so before I start just that, I decided to post this short reference to my best NozbeHOW templates which I regularly use to perform my reviews - you can use these templates even if you don’t have a Nozbe acccount:

Templates I use to review my day, week and quarter

How I go about my day

This past week has been very productive for me because I stuck to my Unschedule calendar and Pomodoro Technique and especially I’ve used the "daily template" I wrote about on the Nozbe blog.

What I do: Every morning after I journal I open Nozbe and go to my templates and open my "Today" template to create a new project with today’s date as the name, like "10 Nov 2017" and I go about my day completing each 30min interval as another "pomodoro". At the end of the day I review this project and complete it.

How I go about my Weekly Review

I’ve described the process in detail here but I basically create a new project from my template and give it a name like "45th weekly review" (where 45 is the number of the week in the year) and I go through the project:

How I go about my Quarterly Off-site

According to advice from Greg McKeown, the author of Essentialism, a book I recommend and have read 3 times already, every 3 months I do a "quarterly off-site", meaning for a day I step back and analyze my last quarter and plan my next one. I discussed this concept with The Podcast my co-host on the 73rd episode of our show. Again I use a template for that - I create a project from this one:

Bonus - two additional templates for TGIF and Journaling

As I journal every day, once in the morning and once in the evening, I ask myself these questions:

Again, today is Friday, or Thank Goodness It’s Friday here in my company, so here’s a rough schedule of today for everyone on my Nozbe team:

Hope you’ll find these templates helpful! Enjoy and share your ways of doing reviews and... Fridays!

Question: How do you preform your daily, weekly or quarterly review?
