Covid-19 will have a permanent effect on how we work. This is the 1st of 5 episodes where we focused on establishing a simple, yet effective system to keep track of and prioritise all your to-do's (personal and work).

By now you probably have established a bit of a routine for when to do what every day.

Great!

But just as you are patting yourself on the back, you realise you now have an even bigger problem:

There is just so much to do and your mind buzzes to keep track of it all.

What you actually need is a simple system that allows you to clear your mind and focus on what is most important at the time.

In this Business Agility Daily video I use a whiteboard, a pen and some coloured sticky notes to show you how you can setup your own Personal Kanban system in just a few minutes.

Try this, it really helps to have a system to manage your workload!

  • Thanks Team for the helpful insight. I have not create a personal Kanban but am considering it to help my wife find a new normal with us sharing our space for the next 21 days. 😉

    One thing I would like to add concerning the video is that it often hangs on buffering. This even happened when I was viewing from work on a 200MB fibre line.

    • Good morning Ingo, thanks for the feedback and I am glad if this tip can help you!

      As to the buffering – I have seen the same from several Vimeo channels over the weekend (all our videos are hosted there). Might be a combination of the world going into lock-down and watching more videos as well as a new undersea fibre optic cable break serving South Africa.
