Kanban boards visualize your productivity

A Kanban board is a flexible way to visualize your work-flow. All you do is list your tasks then move from one lane to another. Here is an example of the Kanban board I use for daily productivity. It can be as simple or as complex as you want to make it. The very basic three lanes are to-do, doing, and done. Try to keep the currently in progress lane with only a few tasks. I have been using Trello to make these boards and am happy with the ability to customize, label, and arrange the tasks in the board. The original template link.

This is an example of my Kanban board: 


As you can see I have a backlog as well as a place for reoccurring cards. At the end of the day I take a screenshot of the board (with Window's snipping tool). Then upload/save it as needed. Right click and archive cards that are done at the end of the day and will not be reoccurring. Then I arrange the board for the morning. I have recently also made a couple of more Kanban boards, to track my medication and other wellness tasks. 

Here is an example of my Annual Kanban board. Not referenced to daily, but are larger milestones and organizational data.


Combine with annual, monthly, weekly, and daily reviews and projections. Along with the pomodoro technique of time tracking.
