Been doing mostly work on #websites the past few days. Also did an assessment of my project ideas, and realized there is one app idea I had that I hadn’t given proper thought to. Could be worth dropping everything for and pursuing over the next month. We’ll see!

I’d like to hear more about how you assess your projects. Is it more about measuring progress or evaluating opportunities or something different?

Thanks for the interest Daniel! 😊 It’s actually a very casual process:

  • I estimate the amount of hours it’ll take me
  • The minimum and maximum potential benefits (Money, skill gained, personal satisfaction)
  • Think of the worst case scenario (helps me be realistic and not be frustrated when something doesn’t work out)

I was able to do this a couple days ago, and realized there is an app idea with huge financial potential that I really want to prototype!

This process is pretty easy for me as I keep all of my ongoing project task lists and project ideas besides one another. Very easy to asess the complexity and benefits of projects since I have everything already grouped together: http://jmp.sh/RqwXGzx

What tool(s) do you use to manage your projects? Recently, I switched over from Wunderlist to KanbanFlow. I found Wunderlist great for quickly adding tasks and sorting by due date (daily, weekly) but with many tasks across multiple projects, I found their lists too opaque, for lack of a better word. I like the visual nature of kanban and I am combining that with Evernote which acts as my reference library.

Kanban is geat! Anything visual beats a task list by miles. 😎

I used Trello for a while with a Kanban-esque workflow, but have since consolidated all of my docs, to-dos, even writing into Notion. I love it because of how free-form it is. it doesn’t force me into it’s idea of what a productive workflow should look like, and gives me room to experiment.
