GTD + EN Weekly Review

The weekly review is critical for success.
The most important thing I do during the weekly review is calendar coordination.  
I typically do this on Sunday evening.

Here is the process:


  • Calendar review and coordination with spouse and family
    • Plan my exercise time for the week.  (This falls in the "put the big rocks in first" category)
    • Coordinate this week's events
    • Discuss upcoming events
  • Empty paper based in-box at home (mostly bills and things to be filed/reviewed) 
  • Evernote Review and Cleanup
    • Run cleanup item saved searches (no tags, no !When, no @Where) 
    • Run weekly review saved search (Looks at all !Later and !Someday/Maybe tags)
    • Review all !Waiting for tags. Can any be moved to a !NextAction? 
    • Click on major tags to see if I have lost track of any items
  • Review archive notebook, is anything ready to be deleted?
  • Delete notes in trash older than 3 months
  • Look through my personal notebook (Evernote Moleskine)  to see if any of my handwritten action items got lost or didn't get entered into EN.    
  • Empty my head into Evernote

Bajio, Cafe Rio, or Costa Vida?

It is time for the showdown.  Which one is best: Bajio, Cafe Rio, or Costa Vida?  Or is it (as was my opinion) that they are all exactly the same?

I decided to do a taste test.  Six people participated.  Three were salad testers and three were burrito testers.  None of the people who participated have any food judging experience although a couple of them have competed in cooking contests and have a couple of first place finishes to their name.   Each couple went to a different restaurant and picked up a Sweet Pork Salad and an Steak Burrito to go.  We ordered each salad with black beans and their creamy green dressing (whatever they happened to call it).  The steak burritos were ordered enchilada style with black beans. Then we all met at a central location and judged each dish on the following:


Value Score = Weight (oz)/Cost($)
Overall Appeal (visual appeal, aroma, garnish)
Recipe (Cooking, ingredient combination, too moist or dry)
Taste (Flavor combination, Seasoning, Texture)

Sea Arch at Cabo

We just returned from a cruise to the Mexican Riviera.  Great Trip!  I didn't take my good camera, so these pictures were all taken with a Canon A1100IS, then processed in Aperture.

This is the sea arch at the end of the Baja peninsula near Cabo San Lucas

Ponderize John 8:3-11 - A bag of stones

As I thought about the experience of the woman who was "taken in adultery", a thought came to my mind.  What do we have in our personal bag with when we leave our homes each day?  Did the scribes and Pharisees make sure they had a bag of stones with them at the ready just in case there was someone who needed their judgment and punishment?  Do we figuratively fill our pouch with stones so we are ready to meet out our own self-righteous verdicts and penalties?   Let's review the story:
3 And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,4 They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?6 This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himsel…
