Two Ways I Use Trello

My mind jumps from project to project.  Right now, I am launching the network, promoting my first children’s storybook, Broken, while beginning to write my second storybook in that series, along with starting a series of discussion guides for family discipleship.  I know there are things that need to be done and things that should be done, oh and the shiny new software toys that pop up from time to time that is just enough of a distraction that I drop everything to explore. 

Is any of this resonating with you?  As an entrepreneur, I am continually creating but sometimes I jump from project to project and don’t always write things down.   I love to use my whiteboard to get the ideas out of my head and into the world. But when I don’t have a white board, I am tasked to remember.  Then I forget.  Then the ideas are gone … vanished.  Perhaps for all time. 

When I discovered Trello, my world changed.  My load was suddenly lighter.  My brain opened up and was free to create, no longer enslaved to remember older ideas.    I love Trello.  Is that okay to say, I love Trello?  I do.  You probably do too.  

I will quickly outline 3 important ways I use Trello here.  I would love to hear how you use Trello differently. 

Trello is My Everlasting Whiteboard

Possibly, I use Trello differently than most. For me, Trello, is primarily a digital white board.  One that I never need to erase.  I use it with others at times, but mostly, I use it alone.  It is my blank canvas to ideate upon.  Trello is my digital whiteboard.  Not only is it digital, but it is also unlimited.  Trello is my everlasting whiteboard.  In my office, I have a great whiteboard.  It has wheels and has two sides.  I can push a button and flip it so I can get to the other side.  In the world of whiteboards, I have a top-of-the-line whiteboard.  But it doesn’t compare to the functionality of Trello as a whiteboard.  My Trello account is more mobile than my wheeled whiteboard and has many more boards than my two-sided whiteboard.  It truly is and everlasting, non-stopping, go wherever you want to go whiteboard.

Trello Thinks Like A Man

 I have heard it said that men think in boxes, well, so does Trello.  If I were to show you my account, you would see rows and columns of colorful boxes and images that represent almost every aspect of my work life, my entrepreneurial life, and my personal life.   It is an organized mess that represents most of the areas I care about.  I can hop into one box create, record, and write out next steps then jump into another box without having to remember what I just did.  For box thinkers, Trello is a work of art.
