I will say out openly, I am one lazy bastard! I am not complaining though, sometimes it helps a lot, like when am coding. I go to extra lengths to make sure I won’t be going back there soon and that drives me to create better solutions.
I generally liked (still do) the idea of planning stuff in my head and cancelling them out whenever my head tells me it’s time to finish them up. I however noticed one problem with this methodology, if I don’t prioritize tasks earlier, I start doing it on the fluy and sometimes this can be done emotionally.
So one day as I was cruising the streets of the Internet last year, I met good guy Trello. First the kanban type tasks boards got my attention. It is a long way from my seat to the office white board so kanban it is!
With the ability to create multiple boards, I have a lot of them ranging from serious office work to short slow paced technical hobbies.
You can also change the background and put the picture of your cat ‘Mr Wiggles’ 🙂
The ability to create team boards and enable assigning of tasks to other members makes collaboration a bit better. You can also enable email notifications to remind you when you’are about to miss a deadline for a task.
Trello also shows an activity log of the latest activities that have happened on every board.
It also features additional features like filters, archiving tasks, sticker and many more cool options.
The commercial version comes with even more power-ups and connections to other platforms that you may be using for your business.
I would say that while Trello can do better in some areas, it is definitely worth checking out and maybe, you might end up using it.
