My close friends and family know I struggle with technology.
I still rock an iphone 4s, I don't own a tablet and shudder at the idea of reading a book on a kindle.
My friends and family would also tell you that I'm hopelessly addicted to sticky notes and paper.
I ADORE anything hand-written.
And as a result of the combination of these two things, my desk is consumed with ideas jotted down on tiny bits of paper.
I do know my way around a computer though and have successfully navigated my way through both accounting and design programs galore.
I got wind of a program called Trello about 2 months ago. I belong to a few Facebook groups and this project management tool was seriously all the rage!
And it's free. So I set up an account and started transcribing my 3 notebooks and 9 months worth of writings.
My thoughts went from this:
My All things branding Trello board
Within my boards and cards (Trello-speak for categories and their notes) lives all of my organized ideas. I am able to capture everything in a simple, visual way.
I can order and reorder it as my work shifts and new ideas arise.
This can grow to as large or as small as I desire. I can share my boards with teams and creative collaborations, or keep it privately to myself.
Trello is a simple technology that doesn't feel overwhelming and helps me to maintain a level of "small little notes" to myself.
