Sooo we have been meaning to getting around to putting together a family Kanban. We’ve been dawdling for about as long as it took to read that last sentence. A long time. In order to encourage the issue, I had to make myself a little more publicly accountable.
What I did was announce that we had this board, and introduced Trello, to our two-year-old son’s ABA therapy team (who took to it like fish to water – they are organizational ninjas). That meant I’d better get a decent Kanban going to invite them to – model the model!
It’s up and running. Our plan is a few minutes’ standup each morning with our son to state our intentions before we head off to work, and a recap before bedtime.
TIL that my five-year-old son wants to:
- Learn to do a headstand
- Learn more about Terraria
- Learn how to run the washer and dryer (to make money doing chores)
- Take over responsibility for feeding the dog (see money, above)
Kanban might just increase my leisure time. . .
