How We Use Trello to Stay Focused on Tasks that Matter

Have you ever noticed that the days you wake up feeling most inspired can also be the least productive?

You start the day overflowing with ideas for new projects, improvements you could make to your website, and ideas on how you can run your social media accounts better.

It’s all you can do to acknowledge one great idea before another comes knocking.

But before you know it, that creative energy turns against you. You can’t focus on any one task and start to feel frustrated that you’re not able to make progress on any of them.

This is something that used to overtake me a lot. Looking back at my years of business, those are days I wish I could get back, because it feels like I spent them yearning for what could be, rather than taking concrete steps to make my vision come to be.

Now, I still wake up with those days, but I have a place to channel all that energy.

Our team’s Trello.

Trello is a project management tool that my team has been using for the past year to manage everything from client work to launches to marketing activities to our team learning.

So when my friend Natasha Vorompiova told me she was releasing a guide on how you can use Trello to organize your business, I jumped at the chance to talk with her about how our team uses Trello.

We went deep into:

  • Why we decided to use Trello, and which other project management tools we tested
  • How we slowly transitioned our to do’s and client conversations to Trello
  • Some of the specific fears that came up when we decided to include clients on some of our boards
  • How Trello helps me be more creative
  • How our boards evolved over time

Watch the video to find out how my team uses Trello to capture our ideas and focus on the tasks that matter.
