    Do you constantly struggle to stay on task throughout the day?

    Are you overwhelmed by the amount of things you need to do with your business or the launch process?

    Have you tried "productivity" systems but fail to keep up with them or use them over time?

    *Note: I am not selling you sh*t, so don't hit the back button yet; you WILL regret it.*


    PREFACE:
    Background: You are a producer. You are working on creating something amazing through a business you have or are building. The problem with your typical list based systems is you can not map the copious amounts of things that need to get done. Most current systems are not structured to pick things from different areas of business to prioritize because they are made for specialists, or folks that focus on one area of things so their task list is related.

    *Note: I implemented this system shortly after FLSummit 2016 and it has done wonders for my productivity. I shared it with a few other Legendary Fastlaners who adopted the system and have seen similar results. Thus I am sharing it publicly to help create even more legendary fastlaners.


    The SOLUTION: The Get sh*t Done (GSD) System** Using Trello.com

    [​IMG]

    The list titles are as follows -

    Goals / Projects / Top | Inbox | Today (MAX 3) | Wait / In-Progress (TEMP) | Finished [Archive] | Someday/Maybe



    Single Point System:

    [​IMG]

    Your GSD "Inbox" List will become the center of your productivity. I want you to enter everything into your inbox. This is a single stream coming into your mental ecosystem. If something takes more than 10 seconds to do, or comes in during your focus time, it goes to the inbox. PERIOD. You are working on removing distraction, so let GSD be your gatekeeper. (this works great paired with a well-trained VA as well.) You can also get apps that give you a quick add on Chrome, Desktops, and You can even integrate it into Google now (Link here). Additiaonl resources can be found here

    You will work things out from here. If it is something for another project management board on trello (hit "B" to switch between trello boards) then you will do that during an organization period. You can set up a direct email to your trello inbox as well to forward emails that have tasks or things to do, right into your inbox as well (info here)

    You can label them with colors if you want. I personally grade mine from hot to cold for priority. Red is HOT, orange, yellow, Blue is COLD. Fairly simple.


    [​IMG]

    You can also expand the cards if the task needs a bit more info. Don't load this with data you want to reference, more so just notes. Like an email that needs to be sent to several people, make a list of the people inside the card, You can postfox the card title with "(details)" like i do to remind you there is addt'l data.



    Visualize Your Projects and Goals:

    [​IMG]

    This is straight forward. Have your goals outlines and actionable. You will not interact with this much, this serves as a constant reminder of the direction your are working towords. Make sure you use the same card pre-fixes to keep everything easy. You can add additional sections for other things like Habits, or events as well if you need.


    What you are doing TODAY - The idea of Kanban + The One Thing:

    [​IMG]

    This section is taken from the kanban system. The idea is that you are limiting what you are working on to three things. PERIOD. You can not add anything until something moves from the list. This keeps your mind focused on what is important. Rather than spreading brain power across 10 things, you have an option of 1 of 3.

    The Trick: Whatever cards are above the line (has to be at least 1 every day) are things that move you towards your bigger goal. This idea is taken from "The One Thing". It insures that no matter what you are doing day to day, you are working at least on one thing moving you towards your large goal.


    Things Waiting - Don't Stop Your Flow:

    [​IMG]

    This is simple, you do not want to waste time waiting on people or things. If something isnt coming back around for a period of time. Re-label it with the reason/action and move it to waiting to not hold yourself up. Typically things you do not know if the turn around time is going to be less than 24 hours or not (emails, account approvals, etc)

    Satisfaction of Completion:

    [​IMG]

    This is where you want to be. You will find an easy addiction to moving cards right and this col being 10x your inbox. It is an easy constant visual reminder that you are actually "Getting sh*t Done" and moving towards your goals every day.



    FINAL NOTES: This is how the system works for me, this will work for you two but make sure you adapt it to anything specific to you as needed.

    I promise you if you spend a day putting everything you have to do into this system, and remove it all from your mind. by day two and three you will not look back. This system will work like your task memory in your brain. So add everything and look at it often. I made it an app shortcut on my taskbar to lauch and keep in an app window all the time.

    Proof is in the Fastlaner: I'll invite a few friends here to share their experience and any additional notes. @AllenCrawley @JasonR @Eskil @Iwokeup

    @LightHouse first turned me on to this. After I set it up, I had to FORCE myself to use it. But once I started using it, I couldn't stop.

    If you know me, you know I'm disorganized and ADHD.

    This has been a lifesaver for me.

    Anything that needs to get done that doesn't take less than 2 minutes gets put in here, so it doesn't get forgotten.

    Trust me, give it a try.

    Unfortunately, they don't have a native Mac app, but there's a work around. I use Fluid - Turn Your Favorite Web Apps into Real Mac Apps. - which allows you to put any web app on your OS X dock. This program is the only app that runs 24/7 on my machine.

    Trello is definitely a no brainer to those that have worked with Kanban before, but as a GSD system it's uses are endless. I know people that use it for grocery shopping!

    I tried Trello and didn't like it.

    The tasks don't wrap to the page and instead the page warps on into infinity causing a perpetual scrolling need. Any way to change this? I spent 30 minutes trying to find a fix and none was found. I saw other people complain about the same sh*t.

    I deleted my account thereafter.

    Okay, so @LightHouse and I were trading ideas back and forth on how to cope with the overwhelming FLOOD of things that come at the entrepreneur/family man, etc. He suggested that I give this system a try and gave me the relevant links to check it out for myself.

    For those who don't know, I manage the following entities:

    1. Independent Contractor Physician, which means that I am, in fact, a small business with attendant tax, state/federal licensing, hospital credentialing, job prospecting (always have to be on the hunt!), legal, admin, and other responsibilities. Figure 4 hours/week above whatever I work in terms of the above.

    2. My current FL project (which includes not only ongoing sales/marketing/the usual, but also future product development, ingredient safety, content generation, face to face marketing, and meetings with manufacturers).

    3. Managing our household, which currently includes finances, land acquisition, home sales/purchasing, caring for the health and wellness of the family, and generally being dad.

    Also, for the record, I'm HUGE into efficiency, removing wasted movement/energy, and massively cutting down on the Information Signal/Noise ratio.

    It's a HUGE part of both my personal and professional lives, and I've tried just about every system out there, all with varying degrees of success.



    NOTHING HAS EVER WORKED LIKE THIS. EVER.

    Now, I can actually wake up in the morning with, as @LightHouse said, LASER like focus on what NEEDS to be done today, and what's less important.

    I've already moved farther since the meetup than I had in the three months prior to the meetup. And it's been...what? About a month since the meetup?

    I also have FOUR different boards, but it's actually not crazy. So for me:

    1. Cosmetic/skin care company - Current
    2. Cosmetic/skin care company - FUTURE (what needs to happen in six months)
    3. Emergency Medicine LLC
    4. Home


    I'm probably going to merge 1 and 2 here in a bit as I think that the current arrangement's inefficient still.

    For me, this system is real. And heck, I went ahead and just paid for Trello Gold because I like it that much. And I NEVER pay for apps unless I have to.

    Rep sent, bro.

    So yeah, that can be an issue, especially with smaller screens.

    I had honestly tried Trello several months ago (after hearing Pat Flynn go on and on about it) but didn't like it because it wasn't nested within a SYSTEM.

    Now that I have the SYSTEM in place, it rocks.

    Yes. I used to use David Allen's GTD system with Evernote.

    @LightHouse Thanks for sharing this. I'll implement it and post how it goes.

    I actually signed up for Trello after the summit with the intent to set something like this up (never got around to it).

    I was the same way, I knew i wanted to like it, but I couldn't. So i figured out why and came out with this.

    There are things you can install in chrome and firefox that make it wrap and extend the functionality. But the thing is, that breaks THIS system. Not to mention it's not cross platform. You do not need any extra col's for this to work, and the length of the list helps you visualize to-do and done.

    On my small laptop all the 5 col's i actually need show up, I have no need to scroll really. I primarily add either in app, or via google now when I am on the go.

    I don't know how well your current system works. But no harm in giving this a hard swing and seeing if it works for you.

    This may help some folks...

    So do you keep track of the project/goal that a task is related to?

    So yes, that can be a bit of a sticky problem. I haven't completely figured it out...I wish that Trello let you really customize the labels (like Gmail does for its labels) so that you could see at a glance what project it was related to......

    Hey Mark, That can be as easy as color coding the goals or projects to the task. Like so

    [​IMG]

    You can also type on labels to name them in expanded view and you can have more than 1 label per card. So if your organize them right, the left color can be the priority and the next color can be what it relates to.

    Personally i note which is which in each card with abbreviation and the rest i simply know.

    Oh and I meant to add this to the first post. Click the following link and you can open the menu on the right and copy this demo board to your account ( using the menu on the left) so all you have to do is add your info!

    So @LightHouse I really like what I'm seeing here. I'm in desperate need of an organization system.

    My question is this: If everything that takes longer than 10 seconds is added to the inbox, how do you possibly manage to shrink the inbox? Or maybe you don't, and you just do the important things, and that's the point of the whole system. Can you share how many tasks are in your inbox now?

    For example, you have a task on your trello board "add msrp and reshoot picture". This could be a 10minute task. Why not just tack it on as a quick 4th thing?

    Or do you complete your 3 mandatory things a day, and then knock out some unscheduled bonus ones with whatever extra time you have afterwards? Where do you fit in daily tasks, like "check email"?


    Do you start a new one of these every month, or do you just let the finished column go on forever and ever?

    Chris, do you just drag and drop 3 tasks from your inbox to the today column each day?

    So the Today list is fluid. It's not as though i only do three things a day and I am done. In fact it is very very far from that. My list is constantly moving. So if the opportunity opens up to re-shoot those photos, once something else comes off the today list I can ad it on there and get that done as well.

    I tend to try to group task types together to avoid a switching penalty as much as possible. A switching penalty is when your mind is changing from one line of thinking to the next, what you might think takes you only a few minutes, actually implicates maybe 45 minutes of lost focused time making you far less effective during the day.

    In the mornings i go through email, and typically all those tiny tasks get done at that time as well.

    So since i am adding throughout the day, there is always something on there already, but in the morning if there is less than three I fill it up after looking through the inbox.

    This method has helped me MOVE though work and tasks like crazy. My biggest issue before this was that there was so many major and minor things, that half the time spent was thinking about what i am forgetting and trying to remember things.

    I like it, going to give it a try.

    I work best off 'to do' lists anyhow so hopefully it will be a fit.

    Nice timing; figuring out a better "calendar" system was actually one of my active tasks right now - I've tried trello before and deleted it pretty quickly but I'll be giving this another chance today.

    Thanks Chris!

    Stuff I’ve been putting off has now been magically getting done.

    Until now, I have never been able to successfully use a digital system for productivity. I've tried Evernote, Wunderlist, Google Keep and many more. One of the things I liked about my notepad to-do’s was the satisfaction I got from manually crossing out a task once completed with a pen. Nothing I tried digitally gave me that satisfaction. With trello you drag a task from the "Today" list to the "Done". That is very satisfying.

    I have always used pen and notepad. The challenge with that has been having various papers, notepads, post it notes spread out throughout my house, office, vehicles. It's difficult to take my large notepad with me everywhere so when a thought came to mind that I need to write down I had to reach for whatever was available. With trello and the system I use everything is in one location and accessible 24/7.

    Here's a great article shared with me by @Arrabista. The article actually shows how the writer moved from a "sticky note " method to translating it on a trello board...
    http://wpcurve.com/trello-for-project-management/

    The key to using trello is having a system. Trello makes it easy to implement a system. I use a combination of GTD, Kanban and The One Thing.

    I would have never stuck with trello without a system and the key for me is to keep it as simple as possible.

    For now I have everything in one board instead of separate boards. I did this because I think I will stick with it vs. have 3 or more boards that could make me feel overwhelmed. So my business, my wife's business and personal are all in one board.

    Here are my lists within the board:

    Projects | Goals > Inbox > Today (3) > Wife's Today (3) > In Progress | Waiting > Done

    I also have a "Reading List" list.

    Everything I think of that needs to be done goes in the “Inbox”. Having Trello installed on my iPhone, iPad and laptop allows me to immediately add anything that comes to mind and it syncs to all devices. My wife also has it installed on all her devices.

    Everyday I move 3 items from "Inbox" over to “Today”. Nothing else gets added to "Today" until there is room for it.

    I really liked “The One Thing” by Gary Keller. So I added a card to the top of the "Today" list that states "What’s the one thing I can do right now to make everything else easier or unnecessary?” as a reminder to focus on The One Thing.

    Since I have everything in one board I’m utilizing the labels and filter features. As an example, while focusing on just my business work I just filter out everything else. My wife can filter out everything but her business tasks.

    I'm still fine tuning the system but I have to say since using Trello with the current system my productivity has skyrocketed.

    Big thanks to @LightHouse for suggesting and all the resources to help me get it set up and systemized.

    This thread was changed to GOLD and here's why:

    1. The OP gets nothing back from this, other than wanting to share a resource that is changing lives

    2. Several high profile fast laners are using this system, so this thread will likely stay active for quite a while

    3. The resource is FREE (see www.trello.com) so there's no downside in trying the system

    4. The insights in this thread already will take you beyond a basic understanding of the system, and gives you shortcuts to apply a fast lane mindset to a fast lane app

    Well done, @LightHouse and thanks for the share.

    And for those of you wondering, I am still using a legal pad. And, the OP accused me of printing out a MAP yesterday instead of using my GPS.

    Ok. I've been watching this thread with interest.

    I'm currently using a mixture of Basecamp (to manage leads, client projects, contractors, and my own projects), together with my trusty moleskin/pen combo.

    I like the moleskin and pen for brain storming, but it's not flexible enough for me to keep up with ever changing priorities.

    I'm starting to be away from my desk a lot and just have my mobile on me (it's amazing to no longer be chained to a desk and PC).

    I've been trying to go fully mobile to manage my own to-do lists, and keep track on new things coming in... and this system might be the way forward.

    I'd tried Trello years ago but deleted it pretty quick. I'll have a go on my mobile and let you know how I get on.



    Chris, thanks for taking the time to write this up and screenshot it. Rep+

    Thanks everyone else for your input too. It's been a great help allowing me to visualise how it can be used.
