Summary of Principles 1-4: The Backlog

Previous Post - 4: Prioritize - focus on work that aligns with your values and learn the art of saying "no"


Congratulations! You have now created, what we call in the Agile software development arena, a Backlog! This is your list of work that you need to accomplish to achieve your goals.

1: Capture - write everything down



2: Categorize - group like items together




3: Summarize - summarize by the end result (not the action / verb)



4: Prioritize - focus on work that aligns with your values and learn the art of saying "no"




Like my coordinated system? If you're sticky note king/queen, get your own Backlog in my shop with coordinating Sticky Notes or get the portable Project Book system that combines the Backlog and Progress Queue.




5: Time Box - identify a length of time you want to accomplish things
