I don't know about you, but I have days when I look at all the different workshops I've signed up for, and all of the different journals I have going, and my head starts spinning! I can't decide what to work on first, and end up doing nothing but surfing the web, getting lost on youtube or facebook, and all of sudden hours have gone by and I'm mad at myself - AGAIN. LOL.
I don't think I am alone in this dilemma, so I thought I would share with you what I've been doing to cope with it...
I Kanban! Have you heard of it? It's a free website that Michael turned me on to. He uses it to track all of his college assignments; and I now use it to track my various journal projects too. Here's a screen capture. (click the image to make it larger)
Here's how it works...
1. I click on the category I want to work on, and start the timer.
2. After 25 minutes the alarm goes off and you get a five minute break.
3. During the break, I do stuff like check facebook or stick a load of laundry in the washer.
4. After five minutes the alarm goes off, and I click on the next category on the list and click start again.
I also keep a list in my fauxbonichi that I update every so often. The little green dots mean I have started the project. Once I've completed it, I highlight the whole line. On Sunday, I managed to get through the whole list - one pomodoro at a time...
