"Good intentions" :- Things I think I'm going to do. I investigate then put in other columns.
"Next Up" :- Need to have a go at next.
"Working On" :- Actively doing.
"Done/Dead" :- Things that I did as well as things I failed at or discarded.
"Follow Up" :- Something happened, so need to wait on something/someone to then allow me to continue.
"Asleep" :- Sometimes things are not 'Dead' they are just really not worth looking at for another year or so. I evaluate these projects once a year or and move them into Next Up if viable again.
It's my home page when I fire up my browser. ;)
That's maybe what I've been missing with this approach...I've set up very similar Trello boards in the past only to have them get stale because I only looked at them on a 'pull' basis rather than having them 'pushed' to me automatically.
Your method just made me realise where I am in my life and how much more I need to accomplish.
I'll be trying this the next couple of weeks.
I also keep ambitions on there. So one of them is "Become a councillor". I don't plan to try and be a councillor until 2019, but it's nice to see it on there. ;)
I'm guessing the board is about dreams, ambitions, and even the odd big task.
