You need to be able to review the whole picture of your life and work at appropriate intervals and appropriate levels.

This is where you take a look at all your outstanding projects and open loop, at what I call the 10.000-foot level, on a weekly basis.

Everything that might potentially require action must be reviewed on a frequent enough basis to keep your mind from taking back the job of remembering and reminding. In order to trust the rapid and intuitive judgment calls that you make about actions from moment to moment, you must consistently retrench at some more elevated level. In my experience that translate into a behavior critical for success: the Weekly Review.
