Personal Kanban and Iterations, Day 2

I’ve made great progress on Day 1, and I wasn’t even in the office all day!

PersonalKanbanDay2You can see I’ve added more todos, at the bottom of my queue. I discovered two urgent todo’s. I had a call-back, to reschedule a doctor’s appt this week to next week, and to vote today. (We have a primary election today for a special senate election in June.)

And, since I’m cheating on how to do a real personal kanban, I thought I would at least describe for you how to do real personal kanban over at Personal Kanban for Your Job Hunt.

You can see now there is a huge drawback to my list. I will have to rewrite my list, instead of just moving the stickies off. This is why in personal kanban, the right way is to not have a list. If you move the stickies, you don’t get this list nonsense, with lines crossed through.

Well, most people don’t have vertigo, either. So, tough. Okay, enough being meta today. On to the real work of the day.

If you missed part 1, here is the link: Personal Kanban and Iterations, Day 1.
