Personal Kanban and Iterations, Day 3

I’ve been busy crossing work off my list. And, as with all of us busy people, I’m adding more work to my list. I feel as if I’ve accomplished a lot this week.

PersonalKanbanDay3It’s just about time to rewrite my list, because with the cross-outs, it’s hard to see where I am. It’s time to go to draft 2 for the workshops, which might be the final drafts for the prose. I will be revising the simulations and interactions during the week. I hope to complete them by the end of the week. I do want to complete the workshops by the end of the week. I will feel more comfortable.

I had some items pop up on my urgent queue: I did go vote.

In yesterday’s post, there is a comment from Lukas, about how he likes rewriting his list, because he gets to reassess the relative rank of each item on the list when he rewrites the list.

If you use stickies, in a real personal kanban, such as I suggest in Manage Your Job Search, you pick up the stickies and put them down. Because you handle the stickies, you have a way of checking in with yourself to reassess the relative value of each item on your queue.

Okay, off to work again today. I’ll check in with you again tomorrow.
