This makes absolute perfect sense.

If you have a project you want to complete, you need to spend time on it. Probably daily, or just about.

If you can simply commit to pulling out a project card and doing one small block of time on whatever is listed on one of your cards, you're making progress.

Ignore your cards for a period, and you're letting your project slip away from you.

Below is a link to an excerpt of a report I wrote recently, which includes my "Project Cards" system. I think you'll find it interesting and hopefully helpful.

Hi Rob,

Thanks for sharing your card system! You know why?

It really looks like a great system for keeping yourself "on track" with projects!

Kind of like a modified check-list system, but which keeps track of time, too... Which sometimes you gotta do...

I'm going to try it out.


Best wishes,
