How to Achieve Your Goals with Trello
I have been using Trello for a couple of months now trialing it and comparing it to another online project management tool. However, it has been over the past 2 weeks that I have taken the time to learn more about it. Trello provides great training articles and blogs to support the ‘onboarding’ or set-up process. I have found it a great free tool on how to achieve your goals personal or business
Now it really is a fantastic addition to my daily routine. Which is what I want to share specifically about here because it will help you to Achieve Your Goals.
As I talk about in a video later in this blog, I am using this online tool to track and action the many small, daily tasks to achieve my goals. It is the discipline of taking action in a small amount each day that accumulates and builds to one day… voila… you have achieved that big, scarey goal! Although the daily tasks are often simple and achievable. We are all human and busy. Therefore to assist staying on track I have created some boards on Trello.
My boards for my Personal and Business Goals
I have transferred my written goals that I create and keep in my Ezy Planner (created by my accountability and productivity coach, Linda McMahon from Essential System Solutions) to Trello. I will create a product review on Linda’s Ezy Planner in another blog post. If you’d like to know more before please send me a message with your name and email address and I’ll connect you with her.
On Trello I have a:
- To Do board, for all things that need to be done daily and in the current week and
- Goals board, for all things longer than a week but divided into Monthly, Quarterly, Annual and longer lists.
Essentially Trello is a bunch of boards with lists. So why is it so great? For me, I love that it is:
- visually appealing
- simple to use (once you understand the lingo ‘power ups’, ‘cards’)
- includes check lists. Don’t you just love ticking off items?
- has automated elements such as recurring tasks and
- intuitive with Butler for Trello
Butler for Trello is really where I see it will become an essential part of my routine. I am still getting to know how it all works. Once I have a clearer understanding I will invest in upgrading so my access to Butler for Trello is not restricted. But I love the fact that you can have a taste of Butler for Trello for free first. So a try before you buy system – nice!
Here is a quick walk through how I’ve become using this tool focusing on my own personal productivity and focus on my personal and business goals:
