When my trello, spreadsheet prioritizations, product roadmaps, or whatever fall to pieces I have two options:
- Fix them
- Get things done anyways
The reason they usually fall to pieces is because too much was going on and so they weren’t maintained for a brief period.
That’s when I find I usually do better to pick up a pen and paper and make a list of some things I’ll do right now and just do them. It’s a clarifying process and helps there be fewer pieces to pick up anyhow.
Here’s to you, amazing sharpie fine-tip pens and cheap dot-grid spiral bound notebook!
