How I use Confluence to Manage my Life

My Confluence addiction is very well known around the Community forces. This article will focus on another Confluence use case, crafted especially for my daily planning needs.

Before leaving my company Confluence space, I already had a Cloud instance to keep all my articles and activities, as well as use it to compare DC and Cloud features in real-time.

After a small vacation from work, moving to a new place, and cooking a load of fancy stuff, it was about time for me to get back to normal. Despite my desire to spend a few months off work, I wanted to keep my schedule identical with the workdays: getting up early, focus on learning and side projects, manage all things β€œI should do when I have time,” etc.

Well… let me say it’s quite easy to take a long walk outside and instantaneously forget about your plan.

 

I obviously had a time management problem, and I used my bulletproof solution to manage it.

πŸ“ First, I made the perfect setup. Confluence instance on my laptop, Cloud apps on my phone, and iPad (the iPad version of the app - 😍 ). This insured my proper connection with myself or my collaborators (if any).

πŸ“ Then created a designated space for all activities: article writing, daily schedule, notes about issues I need to handle, or tasks I have to perform.

Recently I was working with an external collaborator on a food project. My 10 user Cloud tier allows me to add it as a team participant and instead of sending emails and photos through messenger, we created the perfect workflow in no time.

πŸ“ During the Atlympics, I challenged myself to get back to writing and contributing to the Community the way I did before. Have any idea how inspiring is to publish a blank Confluence page with just the title of your article? For my brain - works every time. πŸ™‚

πŸ“ I keep my most precious info in the Special Space, like my ex-team birthdays, memorable dates, locations (most probably around food), plans around attending Team22 (hopefully!), and much more.

After setting up my Confluence instance, I made a Jira board with the slight intention of tracking my daily tasks in a sprint-manner. Confluence won πŸ˜ƒ

I’ll be glad to hear your thoughts about managing your schedule with the Atlassian tools!

I LOVE THIS! I have a personal Confluence space for managing info and things relevant to myself (like some walkthroughs I've written for, say, setting up certain aspects of my website). I also use JIRA to help manage my ADHD. :3
