Creating a Strong Workflow
Crafting a strong workflow is an important part of the process you will undertake. A workflow provides you with a way of getting things done and scaling projects by using a step by step routine and set of rules to help accomplish your workload. A workflow is customised to your routine but provides a great way to scale activities and tasks without the need to constantly upgrade your to-do list or note-taking app. Workflows take time to develop but can be one of the best steps you can take with your productivity.
What is a workflow?
- A series of processes
- Habits and routines
- Micro actions
- Collect input > process input > organize input > complete task > review
- List Inbox > Kanban tasks > list review
- List inbox > Next 7 days task list > weekly review
- Email inbox > Notebook to-do list > plan list review
Designing a workflow:
- Audit categorical processes
- Understand your needs
- How have you alway laid out your tasks?
- How do you approach planning?
- Do you prefer lists or more visual elements?

- If you are looking to scale your productivity
- If you lack discipline with your task management app

Hints & tips
- A workflow takes time, so getting it right the first time is rare
- Persist with your workflow, it'll shape into a stronger outline each time your review it
- The worst thing to do is to change your set-up and apps on a regular basis
