will you separate your work and life into two separated board


I am new to trello. 

  I am curious about if you use trello for both work and life, 

will you use same board to manage both work and life or use separated boards?




Hi Peter!

I'm a big fan of having everything separated. 
That way, when you're not in a working mood, you don't need to get reminded about it and vice versa for life.

Ideally, you can even split it up in different "projects" like a board for everything that has to do with the garden, a board for everything that has to do with households, ... you name it.

My two cents!


Good luck!

I totally agree, @Kaj Sennelöv, all things separated!

I use Trello professionally and in my personal life, just for specific projects:

  • Professionally, depending on the resources available and which departments are involved.
  • In my personal life, I have used it when moving, for big parties, for specific travels, musical projects, and arranging surprises that require others.

So, answering your question specifically, yes, I would definitively use different boards.

Now I'm curious, @Peter Ye: Which possibilities did you evaluate before coming here and ask?

I think community is so great. lots of expertises are here. so I can get different inputs.

that's why I come here and ask for advise.

I have one board for everything. When I kept things separated, important personal tasks could never take priority during business hours and vice versa, but sometimes they need to.

I've ended up doing the same thing as @Iain Dooley . Even though it is logical to have two separate boards, I need to see all the tasks in a one place to be able to plan my personal and work life together :-). 

Same situation is with my personal and work calendar. I need my coworkers to be able to see, when I'm available, so I plan everything in my work calendar.
