Hacking my Productivity

in Design, Flow, Kanban, Learning Cycles, Personal, Productivity Hacks

I just responded to Tomis' post in his Agile Learning Center blog about how his time and work is structured. It's a part of his own practice in the Learning Cycle we talk about in ALCs (Intend --> Create --> Reflect --> Share).  So he's reflecting on his work and sharing what he's seeing so others can learn from it and be connected to him in his process.

I'm also trying to tune my work practices a bit, and have a new hack that I just responded to him about, so following his lead, I'm also going to share it here.  Besides, I need a place I can put the actual image. :)

Kanban Backlog Prioritization Hack

Tomis, 
 
It's great to see your explorations in applying ALC principles to your own work. It's so critical that the students see us authentically e
ngaging in the same kinds of processes that they are.
 
I've been exploring some of this for my work recently too.  I'm trying a 2x2-dimensional hack on the backlog in my main kanban to help me organize/prioritize my time and tasks (I know... you're using Trello, I'm still using mini-stickies on one of our folding mag-white boards).
