A weekly review is exactly what it sounds like: a weekly planning session. It typically takes 5 minutes or less.

Once each week, scan your weekly review list to make sure nothing important slips by. If a soft-date-only task is heating up, you give it a hard date. TRO’s weekly review list is sorted, filtered, so you see only the tasks that need reviewing.

Regular weekly reviews let you use soft dates with complete confidence so you are not tempted to assign hard dates to every task, which would overwhelm you.
