60-Plus Open Items And Counting

It’s that time of the month again when a few random thoughts spur some fingers to dance on this lovely keyboard laying in front of me. That is, in trying to keep up with some sort of regular cadence in posting posts, I’m starting to look at the date of my last post thinking, “oh, I really haven’t posted in a while.” Not a bad thing. More like a floodgate problem. In fact, there are 60 open items on my personal Trello board that I’m keeping track of, with each part progressing ever so slightly — it’s that life-long gantt chart.

BUT! Progress, yes. I used to think I could keep important things in my head. But that list got too long and my memory fails. Next up: a sheet of paper to continue writing that list. But I’m terrible at keeping loose papers organized, too. Awesomesauce. Enter: Trello. Not really a plug… let’s call it kanban-style notes. Monday.com has some cool project management features that ship with that sort of thing, but it’s way too pricey for a personal endeavor, and the former is free, so there’s that. At any rate, now it’s just a matter of managing that list and chipping away at it. Onward then.
