Have you ever done a mindmap page in your journal?
It is perfect to write down all your thoughts for one big goal: what are you going to need, what you should take care, on what should you focus, etc…
Keeping it minimal is crucial, but some colour coding may help… It works like this: try to set a goal. Write it in the middle of the page. Try to think of what areas play important role in order to accomplish this goal. Use a colour for each area (sub-task). Under each sub-task write what you are going to need. Think of everything task (minor or not) that needs to be done in order to help you achieve your goal! Remember, in the mindmap you only write down the titles. The timeline for each sub-task will be done in the productivity tracker!
Try to think of making one next time you have a big project ahead! It sure puts things under perspective!!!
