Dear Work Therapist ... how much is too much?

Dear Work Therapist

Is there such a thing as too much Atlassian? 

I'm worried it is spilling over into my personal life... I keep thinking of ways I can use JWM out of work.  It is wrong to try and suggest to my fiancée that we use it to plan the wedding (asking for a friend!)

Should I think about asking family members to submit contact requests through a JSM portal?

My dreams now come in 2 week sprints, with a massive backlog - do I see a doctor about this?

Please help!

I know the feeling, ive been dreaming in JIRA lately.

My answer is "yes". I do the dreaming about solving problems thing too. But the hardest part is swapping out of the "everything is a task" way of thinking, back into family time. There is no need for a task for eating dinner.

And I'm pretty sure there are other people who have used Jira to plan their weddings. I would imagine the problems come if you assign tasks to the other person without discussing it properly :)

Use the JWM forms to capture the food requests and allergies of all the guests. 

Not quite sure what automation you'd need - but sure we could come up with something!

Depends on how you define "Atlassian" wink. Is it the continuous improvement angle, because if so, keep fueling my tank with that!

A couple gems to share on that note:

For what it's worth, I've used Trello to plan a vacation with a friend and have worked through a writing project with Confluence. And I'm not mad about it :)

Personally I would use JSM here because then your family members could be non-paying customers! wink

Hi @Liam Green I have a colleague who has Jira on his own home server instance for maybe 10 years.

He collects all the bills there, he plans everything there with his wife...

I think it can work if your fiancée and friends are not resistant to it... I think it can be the worst part :D.

Hi @Liam Green ,

the more I use, the more I love it :-).

I would use it! You know these systems and you won't need to test any other, because in the end you will probably need some tool for management.

I wish you a wonderful wedding and that you enjoy it as much as all your guests!

We're a long way off - haven't actually set a date yet, but I guess it is never too early to start the planning!

She already uses it for work so she will either be completely on board or will veto the idea straight away!

Hi @Liam Green 

hahaha, I think you could use Trello to make the wedding plan!!!! I've used it for soooo many things...

Personally I think that I also extrapolate many things from atlassian to my daily life, even the school girls' schedules I have them on a trello board... I love it 💙!!

Hi @Paloma Fondon Araujo 

I must admit, I don't really use Trello - so I don't think I'd trust it for my wedding... I might suggest it to my fiancée though.

I think the products do actually adapt really well to everyday life - especially for planning, etc.

Someone wanted to plan their wedding in jira cloud on a free version recently and I told them not to do it because you would have to spend so much time onboarding people (wedding party), but I would like to hear how it went with you.

Congrats
