Personal Kanban: Improving your life one sticky note at a time

We all have too much to do. We all get overwhelmed. Wouldn't it be great if there were a low-fidelity way to understand ourselves and the things we need to do that could actually help us to de-stress, enjoy our accomplishments, and end each day knowing we did the best we could?


Outline/Structure of the Presentation

This talk will be laid out on a wall in the form of Post-it posters that show multiple versions of personal kanban boards for a variety of purposes.

Intro: What is personal kanban and why I want to give this talk

Walkthrough: We'll go over multiple examples of personal boards that help with a variety of challenges: Kid's chores, Kid's school, Home projects, and day-to-day work. I'll also be involving the participants in discussions as we go along.

Q&A Participants will be asked to share either ways they've used kanban in their lives or they can ask for help with challenges they may have.
