I have been using “review” only during my weekly review. I have projects set to show up on Saturdays to keep them on my radar. Most are set to weekly. Some I set to every 4, 8 or 12 weeks. FYI, in my weekly review this week, I have 230 projects in the “review” perspective. It feels like I’m merely skimming the surface of these projects during the review, but at least they are on the radar.
I’m using flags with defer dates to see what I need to work on each day. I’m using a few different perspectives for this. One sorted by priority (tag 1-5), and one based on the deferred date, This system seems to be working pretty well.
In my active flagged perspective, I have 52 actions and 27 projects.
Deferred flagged view has 160 actions and 59 projects
I’ve been hesitant NOT to flag any item I really need to do (not a maybe) as I’m concerned I might never get to it in the “review”…
I use due dates very sparingly. Only for an item with an actual due date.
David Sparks said recently he used to do something like this, but shifted to using review more instead of flags with defer dates.
I could set some projects to review daily, instead of flagging them…however, they would no longer show in my Forecast perspective.
Has anyone tried this transition? In either direction?
