Task shortlisting with Trello

Hi y'all, I've created a "manual edition" of my Hooked on Zero task prioritisation system and added it to this board:

There's a video screencast showing what this looks like here (also linked in the board):

The thesis here is that, rather than using either due dates or an "ordered list" to prioritise, you're better off creating a series of shortlists by using quick yes/no decisions in a "left/right swipe" model and "shunting" each list over to the right as you go.

I've written about it in more detail here:

Let me know what you reckon and if you have any luck using it!

Is a great article.  Whilst I do put due dates in, that only for the tasks that have an actual due date ... like pay tax return by XX. 

Everything else gets put on a priority list, with more urgent ones so clear all the priority ones, then move to the priority twos ... though in each category, of course there would be clear the blockers first ... thats the parents of child tasks, where something else is dependant on that, and until you do, they dont have a free road to zoom on.
