Traffic light systems

This last month, I’ve been juggling several different projects.

It’s good to be busy, but having this many different things on the go is sometimes a little tricky because it’s hard to focus in on a specific project or thing.

One way I decided to tackle this at the start of the week was writing a mind map with each project and the specific tasks required.

Following on from that I then highlighted the ones that required deadlines first, as red, meaning this was what I needed to do in the immediate short term.

Things that had a week or fortnights timeframe was highlighted amber whilst other projects that had much more flexibility were marked as green.

When there’s a lot going on, it’s good to differentiate what needs doing in the short, medium and long term.
