Boss Up Project Mgmt

I am really blessed with fantastic work. Clients I enjoy, work that matters, and enough control of my domain to spend time still dreaming, doing, and being active with my family. That said, I needed some tools to keep me on target, on time, and on budget – in other words, I needed a tool to keep me Bossed Up. One of my favorites is Trello.

Trello is a web-based project management application that allows you to organize and prioritize tasks visually and intuitively.

Here are the six top things that Trello can do for you:

  1. Manage your projects: Trello helps you break down your projects into manageable tasks, assign them to team members, set deadlines, and track progress.
  2. Help collaborate with others: Trello allows you to share your boards and cards with team members, making it easy to collaborate on tasks and communicate with one another.
  3. To stay organized: Trello’s drag-and-drop interface allows you to easily move tasks from one list to another, helping you track what needs to be done and what has been completed.
  4. To prioritize tasks: Trello’s color-coded labels, due dates, and checklists help you prioritize tasks and ensure that essential tasks don’t fall through the cracks.
  5. To improve efficiency: Using Trello, you can streamline your workflow, reduce time spent on administrative tasks, and increase productivity.
  6. To access information from anywhere: Trello is web-based, which means that you can access your boards and cards from any device with an internet connection, making it easy to stay up-to-date on your tasks no matter where you are.

Sold? Fantastic. Here are the 8 tips to make the most out of Trello:

  1. Create boards for each project or area of focus: Trello allows you to create multiple boards, each with its own cards and lists. It’s a good idea to create a separate board for each project or area of focus to keep things organized.
  2. Use labels and tags: Trello allows you to add labels and tags to cards, which can help you quickly identify the status or priority of each task. You can also use labels and tags to group related tasks across multiple boards.
  3. Customize your boards: Trello allows you to customize your boards with backgrounds, stickers, and other visual elements. This can help make your boards more visually appealing and easier to navigate.
  4. Use checklists: Trello allows you to add checklists to cards, which can help break down larger tasks into smaller, more manageable steps. You can also use checklists to track progress and ensure that all necessary tasks are completed.
  5. Collaborate with others: Trello allows you to invite others to collaborate on boards and cards. This can be helpful for sharing information, assigning tasks, and keeping everyone on the same page.
  6. Use the calendar feature: Trello allows you to view your cards on a calendar, which can be helpful for planning and scheduling tasks. You can also set due dates for cards, which will appear on the calendar.
  7. Use keyboard shortcuts: This is really cool. Trello has a number of keyboard shortcuts that can help you navigate and manage your boards more quickly and efficiently. You can find a list of shortcuts by pressing the “?” key on your keyboard while in Trello.
  8. Integrate with other apps: Trello can be integrated with a number of other apps, including Google Drive, Slack, and Evernote. Integrating with other apps can help streamline your workflow and make it easier to manage tasks and information across multiple platforms.

Let me know what you think. Happiness can come from anywhere – like when you find a tool that increases your ability to create joy!
