Task Cloud

I had the last four days mostly off work. I had a huge list of things I wanted to get done. I also wanted to relax and not be frustrated.
Task Cloud 6-22 to 6-26

So, I decided to try a new method of remembering, planning and scheduling tasks. I created a Task Cloud.

You all know tag clouds, right? They are the little boxes that show up on web sites with clickable words in fancy fonts. They're a sort of pretty way to put out information.

I took my big planning sketch pad and started writing everything I could think of that I needed to do. Every time I though of something else, I added it to the Task Cloud. If I did something that wasn't on there, I added it. (Thanks for the suggestion Dad!). I crossed out things as I did them and doodled as I looked over the tasks. I also wrote some of the outcomes I wanted. Like, I don't really want to clean the bedroom, I just want a peaceful, good smelling place to sleep. Then I wrote some of the steps needed to achieve the outcomes.

I'm not sure what I think of my Task Cloud.
It's certainly an interesting experiment. I may repeat it.

I like this idea! I have a tendency to make lists which can become quite daunting...but maybe a task cloud would make things less rigid and more 'do-able!'
