Read Millionaire Fastlane
- Aug 13, 2007
"Fastlane" is an entrepreneur discussion forum based on The C.E.N.T.S Framework outlined in the two best-selling books by MJ DeMarco (The Millionaire Fastlane and UNSCRIPTED®). From multimillionaires to digital nomads to side hustlers who are grinding a job, the Fastlane Forum features real entrepreneurs creating real businesses with one goal in mind: Freedom— both financial and temporal.
Yes, it's similar to mine, grouping tasks by category. I like it better than a big un-ordered list of tasks.I have been thinking about two things since you posted. The Maker/Manager distinction which I am working on implementing (although i don't think the original purpose lines up with what we are using it for here) and also this spreadsheet view.
Not Lighthouse, but I thought I would share my method.
If you share a screenshot help ...Not Lighthouse, but I thought I would share my method.
In the first column which I called "Goals / Habits" I split it into a few sections of short term, medium term, long term goals, and then daily habits. Whenever I do my daily habits I move it into the finished column into the "Daily Wins" section.
At the end of the day I archive my one-time tasks and move my daily tasks/habits back into the first column to be ready for tomorrow.
I can share a screenshot if needed.
Essentially, I just use the exact setup from the very first post in this thread. Then I sync it up with a tool called pomello that points to my "Today" category. Pomello will setup a pomodoro timer for your task and encourage you to get your task done in 25 mins. Then at the end of the pomodoro you just move the task over to the "Finished" section and you move onto the next task. Repeat ad infinitum until all tasks are done for the day. It makes it super simple to just grind out your day's to-do list. Good luck!Hi everyone. Been following this forum and this thread for a long time! Gold mine.
Started with Trello building up a system and testet Omnifocus (not that appealing) and lately Favro, with I can see the benefits of using. But I've decided to go for Trello for my own productivity system (not managing a team).
I feel I've been coming a long way, but I'm eager to talk to people who are currently using the Trello setup.
Can I find people who want to make this method work and get exchange best practice? PM me.
Those instructions are wildly out of date and use the now defunct Google voice.Great thread. Set up this system with Trello and so far really digging it.
Having a problem setting up AutoVoice, though. Was going through the process, but when I tried getting Google Assistant to talk to AutoVoice, it said "AutoVoice isn't available on devices set up for your language or country." I'm living in the Philippines at the moment.
Anyone know if there is another way to get set up for voice that's more accessible?
Thank you.Those instructions are wildly out of date and use the now defunct Google voice.
If there is not direct commands by now you can atleast use this
Create new Trello cards by voice, using Google Assistant
No idea but I'm sure with a little research you can figure it out!Thank you.
That doesn't seem to work for me for some reason, though.
I followed the instructions there, and it says it's turned on, but every time I use the given command, Google Assistant just does a Google search of the sentence.
I've never really used Google Assistant so maybe I'm just missing something obvious?
Unfortunately I can't update and re-fresh the OP. But i suppose I can make a new V.2 thread. I think most people see the date on this and think it is not relevant, except the same system still works just the same its just a long thread.Time for a revival
For me, trello + pomello is the perfect combination Pomello - Stay focused. Accomplish more.Just want to share a variation on this that has worked for me.
I recently had to produce a video course in a highly technical topic in software. It required reading source material, turning that into code and exercises for students, all of which had to be original. Then I had to turn that into a script, slides, and video. All of high enough quality to sell to software developers at a $50 price point. In short, a rather large undertaking, particularly for a first time video course producer.
I used a platform called Kanban Flow. It's similar to Trello in that you can divide tasks up into cards, but it integrates a Pomodoro timer as well. If you're not familiar with the Pomodoro technique, it's 25 minutes of focused labor (i.e. deep work) followed by a 5 minute break.
This also allows you to track time spent on tasks, as well as to track Pomodoro output by day, week, and month. This adds a gamification element to it, as you eventually want to keep that number high, for as long as possible.
Would also be curious about this !These days a lot of tasks make up some digital mess- folders, files, source files, exported files, temporary files. Anyone using an organised system for that? I mean not a third-party application or another OS but how do you name files and folders for quick work-flow.
