I generate and record ideas best using digital outliners (Ecco Pro going way way back, then Workflowy, CheckVist, OneNote) but the way I remember best is visually and spatially. Outlines of hierarchical plain text are not the best tools for recall.
So in my researching one topic or another and in my trying to keep up with the details and dates for the organizations I’m involved with, I keep coming back to the most visually-customizable and adaptable way to remember what is going on in my life–the moreso as my own whimpy neurons are less able to do the heavy lifting.
The tool I use lets me see my details laid out multi-dimensionally. You may never have heard of it but you might be glad you’re about to, or to share the Trello link with someone it might work for very well.
It is called TRELLO. The free version is immensely useful and intuitive. But I need your help to go Gold. More about that in a minute.
Without geeking too much about this, Trello is a bulletin board of sorts, where you create columns of related drag-and-drop cards (these columns are called LISTS), with a list for each related category for any given bulletin board (or simply BOARD.) What boards, lists and cards you create will be unique to your project at hand.
Generally, one common way to use Trello is to sort the most important or timely cards at the top of a given list, and move cards in lists from left to right across the board as the project advances. The user can, in this manner, track the progress from idea to completion–from doing to done. And you can choose to share a board with team members or family to comment on some or all of your boards.
Each card–so very importantly–has an info-rich “back side” where you can create and record all sorts of important stuff–checklists, date information, web links, attachments, images and such.
Thanks for taking a bit of time in your own behalf–and MINE! Let me know of your successes with Trello!
