If you are a person who does things, this post might be of interest.
The reason I am writing this is because it is on my list of things to do today; or rather, I put this on my list of things to do today because I wanted to write it. I made my list over at KanbanFlow, a wonderfully simple web interface for the Personal Kanban method of organization.
Essentially, you break everything you have to do down into categories: Backlog (if you have one), To-Do, To-Do Today, In Progress, and Done. You define tasks and subtasks. You look at all these lists simultaneously and track your workflow.
The app also includes a Pomodoro timer, which times you at 25 minute intervals, then announces that you should take a 5 minute break. Every fourth pomodoro you take a 15 minute break.
Finally, some good stuff for Chrome users: Pearltrees and 20-cubed. The former lets you organize Web pages and sites in an intuitive and easy manner, and the latter is an annoying box that pops up every 20 minutes to remind you to look away from the screen for a bit. You’re welcome.
And on a completely unrelated note, here is a thing about words; especially the word “thing”, and why the way we’ve taken to saying “It’s a thing” is quite true to the spirit of the thing. The thing being the word “thing”. OK, I’ll stop.
