Why share your weekly status:

- You might get valuable feedback or inspiration.
- It strengthens your network, and deepens your connections with those you exchange with.
- You get insight into what your friends are focusing on, which gives you the possibility to help them, if you stumble upon something relevant for them.
Suggestions for possible things to share:

Things to remember:
- It is important for the habit, that you exchange one status every week. “Too busy this week” is also a status.
- The weekly status is personal growth, – be humble and focus on the positive side.
- There is only one status per week per person, – so you can just check it once per week, before you do you own weekly review. It is a weekly exchange, not a discussion forum.
- You are not required to give feedback or read the details other status, – though it is a very good way to connect.
- It is a mutual exchange. Only send status to people who also want to share regularly with you. The weekly movement is a network with deep connections. If you want an audience, use a mailing list or asocial media.
- You can send different subsets of your weekly review to different groups of friends. There are things you tell your close friends, that you do not share with acquaintances.
- Motivate your friends, by including inspiring content, or follow up with a message to them them with feedback to what they write.
