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.

    Crossing the lines gives me better feeling than just moving cards/stickies around. Rewriting the list is a good opportunity to reevaluate importance of each item. These are two good reasons why the kanban list is better for me than the kanban board.

  2. Lukas, Gee, and I thought I was the only one like that! When I write today’s post, Day 3, I was going to explain about re-evaluation of each item. (I’m commenting the next day, for those of you who are reading this later.) Thank you.
