My Personal Kanban Board

After few quick attempts and experiments with Kanban board, I am going to start using this Kanban implementation, 

So what is 4D matrix of Things to do.

  1. DO
  2. DECIDE
  3. DELEGATE 
  4. DELETE

The idea behind 4D is simple – keep clutter out and gain more focus on get things done. 

I have started putting my to do a list in the matrix but it is just for every fortnight  or 2 weeks. So that I can start doing more rather just scared myself away from long list of To do. Every week I have 3 main priorities to carry out and everyday just three things to do, thus my list items are limited in numbers, each DO part can only has maximum of 6 tasks (which is  3 tasks (priority) per week),  and rest of grids are either DELEGATE or DELETE and DECIDE(DIFFER). DECIDE is a column which you can think as important but not so urgent or less priority. 

After that Next is a column holds tasks I am going to tackle in the current  week, and if I was interrupted by any variables then it will be put ON HOLD, may be later either I can DECIDE, DELEGATE or DELETE. And when it needs to be done then just start DOING it and upon done it’s DONE. Here is the magic doing cell has only one  and one task at any given time.

Now every evening or first thing in the morning I can update board and start doing more, by limiting my to do list and achievements I reward myself a treat or may be if too many things on hold for current week then push a bit and decide or delete quickly without demotivate myself or feeling grief about it.

Next four weeks I am going to monitor how things are going and measure my success by using task points, each task has an effort mark on it. Let’s say if things take less than an hour has 1 point and if more than 1 hour but less than 2 hours then it has 2 points and 4 points, 6 points, 8 points and 10 points maximum. 

I am working 48 hours a week including travel. Achieving 10 points a week will be a good milestone however, I am not going to crazy on that. I would rather progress slowly and steady week by week.

Ciao.

Dream Big, Act Little

Dream-Big-Act-Little

 

Well Original saying was Think Big.

But I think after Big Thinking I concluded to Dream Big, Act Little.

Let me elaborate more what I mean by Dream Big, Act Little.

Most of the time mind wanders and thinking all the time, known fact. No Big deals, Thinking Big is also not a big deal, wishful thinking, all good to say. But How you are going to fulfil is a question?

What I mean by Dream big, act little means everyday try to see same dream over and over and over, your subconscious mind will lay out all the ground work for you and all you need to do is act a little.

Seems like some magical things, but in fact it is not. Let me tell you thinking is a conscious thing and your mind play games when it comes to thinking, but in dreams you are creating a world which deeply attached to your desires and emotions. The same dream can make these roots stronger and better. Effectively, it nurtures your habits and creates an environment for you to be successful in every possible way.

Someone can easily argue about it, says always think big, I wouldn’t have denied it, but rather I would say dream big and act little as your higher self will drive you there to achieve your big dreams. This could be your journey or even lifelong mission or purpose of your own birth in this earth.

Peace.

#lawofattation, #magical, #motivation, #dreambigactlittle, #desires, #dreams,

So, now what?

Well after few failed attempt to the mail delivery notification. I gave up but it is till buzzing me in my head. It’s quite a learning curve naturally I wasn’t expecting that.

So,now what? Wait and watch.

Topic – You’ve Got an Idea–Now what to do next???

This is continue series of the successful mantra for your ideas to identity.

In my last post I have talked about ideas and how it was shaping. I meet lots of people with their own businesses and they are very good at business but terrible at technologies and reserved for adopting new ideas and innovation in their businesses.

I can not blame them they are, what they are. I can not say they are orthodox or paranoid but simply in their mind they have deep belief that website and online does not work for them, they are happy with their little world. Which I think is fine opportunity like me.

At Ram Infosystems we make their profile and try to understand them first before even making any conversation with them directly. We know inside out about their business and their passion for the business. It is crucial for every step of any business.

So now  we were at “You have got an idea – Now what to do next?”

It is a mind blowing idea and it gives you a buzz and thrill. but first of all how you are going to represent to the outside world. For that You need a website. 

And we are going to discuss today why?

Do you need your own website?

Yes! The answer is most obviously yes.

You will at the very least need to get your own domain name to use for your website since your idea will not represent without a platform. If you want to sell anything now a days you need to reach far and far by mean in whole universe. THE WORLD WIDE WEB (www).

So if you have an idea and what a website quick visit www.raminfosystems.co.uk

but WHY?

Because there are hundreds and hundreds of sites out there and every one of them has not exact same site or idea like yours. That means if you don’t have a way of differentiating your idea from the others, you will be buried in your own well.

Notes from Yesterday:

I was not able to recover after distracted in Webcam settings, Shame that was not on the list nor in the priority, it has eaten my 3.5 precious hours.

This will include basic gathering and reading of various chart indicator objects as such (Tick, Daily Bar, Bollinger Band, parabolic sar, SMA, EMA, RSI,) and basic mock of decision engine (Input something and output something), Decision Rules (the most complex part).

Wednesday 12th August 2015

Notes from Yesterday:
