How Solid Is Your Personal Productivity System? 4 Trello Boards To Try

Just as no two people learn or think the exact same way, there will always be individual factors that play into how each person defines their own productivity routine. Lining up your lists in order of “To-Do,” “Doing,” and “Done” is just the start! There is a common thread, however, that’s shared by folks who are truly productive. And it’s something that we at Trello have noticed among top productivity experts—they all spend an awful lot of time customizing, tweaking, and outright inventing productivity routines with the purpose of creating the best possible way of getting things done for themselves. Say Hello To Card Dependencies With The Hello Epics Power-Up. Sometimes plans and projects get big.

Say Hello To Card Dependencies With The Hello Epics Power-Up

So big, in fact, that you start to lose perspective on all of the moving parts and how they relate to each other. Another important aspect that gets lost in the mix as projects scale is which Trello cards depend on other cards before they can move forward.

The Hello Epics Power-Up uses dependencies to help you develop new product features, plan events, or drill down into more specific areas of a project.

How & Why to Build a Basic Gantt Chart for Almost Any Project. [Estimated read time: 13 minutes] I had planned on writing about losslessness, about accurate reproduction.

How & Why to Build a Basic Gantt Chart for Almost Any Project

I’ve always found it strange that at just about the same time that true losslessness became widely available cheaply, we suddenly seemed to care less about fidelity than ever before. So I had wanted to discuss the Internet’s imminent future, almost undoubtedly VR-based and highly resolution-dependent, and how that vision is slightly at odds with its history of relegating virtually everything to simple, low-resolution, compressed formats. With the path to writing such a post research and time-intensive, deadline-bound, and rife with potential rabbit holes that could very well result in me unintentionally plumbing the depths of the Internet, I began framing it as though it were typical proposed work — which, for me, means organizing a basic Gantt chart.

It’s something I do to frame the projects included in client engagements, beginning even during the proposal stage. Custom Fields: Now With Mobile, More Fields, Plus An API To Make It Yours.
