6. What have I struggled with in the past that could help me this week?

The idea behind this question is to think about what you’ve learned from the mistakes and challenges of the past that can serve you for the future. You might be surprised to discover that many times in the past you’ve dealt with problems similar to the problems you face in the present.

7. What was my biggest distraction this past week?

Just knowing what you spent most of your time (physically and mentally) in the past week can bring you to a state where you think twice before you fall into the same distraction next week.

8. Am I carrying baggage from the previous week with me into the coming week?

Whether it's an emotional storm, unfulfilled errands or other kinds of "baggage", there are many things we carry with us that can be left behind to start the new weak on a clean new page.

9. What task did I progress in this week?

It does ’t matter whether it's personal professional, we all avoid "annoying" tasks. It's time to stop dodging them and finish what you have to do. If these tasks take 20 minutes or less, schedule them in for next Sunday, and if they take longer, schedule them in throughout the week and commit to doing them.

10. What opportunities are on the table?

If you have an opportunity that is just waiting for you to pick up, decide that this week is the time. Plan everything from the execution plan to the timetable. Remember - if opportunities were given over and over, they wouldn’t be called "opportunities".

11. Is there anyone I intended to talk to and didn’t this last week?

Communication is the basis for solving problems even before they start, don’t give up a healthy conversation with those around you, and contact with old friends or relatives.

12. Is there anyone who deserves thanks from you?

When you invest thought in your week, think of the people who helped you. Gratitude is the most important thing in human relationships, so show others that you care about them. As you would probably want to hear thanks for your actions, make sure to show your friends your appreciation.

13. How can I help someone in the coming week?

The best way to get what you want is to help others achieve what they want. It isn’t a matter of hidden interest or hypocrisy, but of courtesy that brings with it courtesy.

14. What are my top 3 goals for the next 3 years?

In order to advance in life, you must set realistic goals for the long-term and meet them. Remind yourself every week what it is you want to accomplish, and where you want to go.

15. Did my last decision bring me closer to achieving these goals?

If the answer to this question is no, you probably need to rethink your decisions.
