So, this is the beginning of the restructure. I"m a computer programmer that has a running group of about 3 to 5 projects in the air at any time. These projects I call my primary objectives as I am expected to report on their status at a weekly meeting on Tuesday.
My challenge is that I also catch ad hoc work during the week that my boss knows about but is less interested in hearing about on a regular basis. This causes me to run the risk of ignoring those "Secondary Objectives" in lieu of having the primaries move.
Therefore, I decided to devote two days of the week to the secondary objectives and commit to three days of the week to the primaries. Also, I identified a primary project to focus on and scheduled that for the week. At this point, I'm not sure that's practical, but I like a themed approach as it will allow me to be more realistic in my ETA's so I'm going to go with it.
My Themed Week.
My Todist Setup (TFI is the initals of where I work. ) Each of the projects then has its own bucket within those overarching bucket.
