Thanks. Can you you give me an example of an automated task vs. a task vs. a project? Just pick something from your day today.

When I say task, I’m saying “a step in a project” and when I say project I’m saying something that’s going to take me between 15 minutes and 4 hours. At least above. I also say project to mean ten people working for two years. But that’s not what I’m talking about right now.

Re: Trello. I do use Trello for project planning. So I might write a list in a Trello card today and then pull that card to work on in two weeks.

What I was getting at with the journal vs. to-do list is that the journal is meant to become a working document for your day, like a scratchpad. You can still use any number of other systems for tracking, planning and coordination.
