The Monthly Review is a Systems Check

In The Weekly Review is an Operating System, I detailed the process I go through each week to capture any new open loops, clear my workspaces, and nail down the events and commitments for the week.

In this article, I’d like to do the same for my Monthly Review (MR).

Because the MR touches on deeper patterns in how I work and live, this article is going to be longer than the previous one. Here’s a quick table of contents:

  1. Tiago’s Monthly Review: how I do it
  2. Focus as structural integrity: how it produces focus
  3. My learnings: what I’ve learned from doing it
  4. Accumulating change: how it influences personal growth
