Lego Task Management
We like software developer Michael Hunger’s creative method of time management: instead of using a planner or online scheduler, Hunger opts for a simpler, yet highly effective system – lego stacking. Hunger keeps track of how he spends his time by assigning each project he’s working on with a color, and stacking the lego bricks in accordance with how much time he devotes to each. The single-line lego tracks at the base represent days of the week, with the project bricks in different colors piled on top giving an easy-to-read visualization of the relative amount of time he is devoting to different tasks. The lego stacking system is not only more appealing than a typical day planner on a visual level, but more fun to use – which, as Lifehacker points out, means we’ll be more likely to use it.
