Personal Kanban and Iterations, Day 4

I’m still chugging along, making great progress. I took some interruptions yesterday, as many people do. They are not reflected on my kanban. They are in my calendar, which I am not showing you :-)

PersonalKanbanDay4A potential client emailed, asked for a call. I said yes, and we arranged for a call that day. Could I have put it on my kanban? Yes. Did I bother? No. Does that make me a bad person? No. It’s my kanban, not yours.

I don’t track metrics from my kanban. If I did, I would want that and the other calls there. But I don’t, so it’s fine.

I’m using my kanban to help me to get to done on my tasks, not to track my every piece of work. I’m using it to not forget work. I have a couple of phone calls this morning and a phone call this afternoon. I hope to complete one of the workshops today. Maybe.

I have a workout tomorrow and a number of phone calls, so I might not complete anything tomorrow. We will see. On the other hand, I am whittling down my list to something manageable. I no long feel anxious about it. I can see my progress. And, I have managed to blog this week. I am a happy, productive woman.

And, that is what personal kanban is all about.
