Hey there friends!
A little bit of context: We've all heard tons of productivity advice... be a morning person, use pomodoros, stand while you work, etc. But the truth is, not all of that advice works for everyone, and the best way to find out is to try things and see works. To do that, you just need a list of things you want to try and a way to measure and document what you learn from trying those things.
I'm playing around with the idea of using Trello to track my productivity experiments. I'm thinking a list of ideas... like pomodoro technique, eating breakfast, skipping lunch, drinking more water, starting my day earlier, leaving my inbox closed, keeping my phone in another room, etc. And then another list of In Testing when I am actively testing something, and Tested for when it's complete.
To track things, I want to use Custom Fields to track things like my level of Focus, Mood, Attention, Energy, etc.. Of course this will be somewhat subjective, but at least giving some thought to it and hopefully relatively comparing all these things so that will be great.
If i can get something cool here, I want to try to write about it on the Trello blog, so please note - I might share things that are mentioned in this discussion! (Please let me know as you post if that's NOT okay and I'll make sure not to mention that in my post.)
1) Any ideas how to make my tracking less subjective? (Ie, how can i measure my level of focus besides "i felt more focused this week when i did this".)
2) Any other ideas for what I can do with my Trello board for better tracking?
3) Any other ideas of good tests? (Any common, or not so common, productivity advice you've heard).
