You’ve got doctor appointments to schedule for yourself and your family, your next report is due in two days, the car needs gas, you need to schedule your kids summer camp before all the slots fill up, your email in-box has over 100 messages, and your first meeting is in 10 minutes. Does this sound like your day? If you’re like many of us, your daily life is filled with numerous tasks, projects, and duties that sometimes overwhelm even the best planners. Does pulling an all-nighter sound familiar to you? Often we let these things fester and languish only to overwhelm us later in a flurry of last minute to-do’s that quickly turns into utter chaos. How can you tackle this chaos and turn it into something manageable?
The solution can be simpler than you may think, Personal Kanban.

While you may be familiar with Kanban for your work teams to visualize and manage work, this session describes how to use the Kanban method for your personal activities by focusing on simplicity, visualization, and prioritization of your tasks.

Helene has been using a form of this method since approximately 2007 and the process has been her constant companion through graduations, weddings, holiday plans, and work commitments. Through her dedication to this process she’s maintained a regular exercise regime, kept key items moving, avoided any last minute panics or rushes, and obtained 7-8 hours of sleep nightly.

Come learn how to turn your daily chaos into a manageable process and leave with a start on your own personal Kanban.
