daily planner trello board - visual laptop

It’s no secret I am a huge Trello fan. I use it to organise all aspects of my life, starting from my daily priorities and activities with my daily planner Trello board.

I am a firm believer that using Trello is the easiest way to stay on top of everything that needs to be done and actually get it done.

So today I want to share with you my daily planner Trello board.

It is absolutely free to download and use, and I will walk you through step by step. You’ll learn how to get it and how to make the most of it.

How to be more productive with this daily planner Trello board?

I have created this Trello board following some well-known productivity principles outlined in this article.

It took me a while to create a board that is easy to use but extremely effective.

However I realise we are all different and you might want to make tweaks to the board to suit your needs. That’s definitely possible, as Trello is fully customisable.

What is this Trello board useful for?

I have created and used this board to manage my day to day life, to answer the question “Ok, what do I need to do today?”

It covers any type of activity: work, personal, or hobbies. I use it for my personal life because I have a few other boards for hobbies and work.

How to use this free Trello board?

Full instructions are available in the first card of each list (column). When you’re comfortable, the card can be archived or moved to another column. You could even move it to the bottom of the list, for easy access in the future without cluttering your visual plan.

When a card is complete, it can be easily archived. Don’t worry, archived cards can still be accessed. Alternatively, you might want to create a “done” list, to visually see what you have accomplished and completed in a day.

My favourite labels (tags) are also pre-populated for you, but they can also be amended if they don’t work for you.

This is how I use it:

daily planner trello board - main lists

Brain dump

I start by writing down everything that’s on my mind, things that I need to do, things that I want to do, things I need to remember for someone else to do… literally everything!

There are two reasons why I use the “brain dump” list.

First of all, writing everything down frees up so much mental space that can be used to actually get stuff done. Do you ever feel like you have too much on your mind that’s stopping you to see what needs to be done? No more of that!

Furthermore, the brain dump list will serve as basis to decide what the focus is for each day.

Daily priorities

Every morning (or the evening before) you should identify what are your top 3 priorities for the day, what you want to accomplish by the end of the day.

Maintenance Day

I talk about the concept around Maintenance day here. Throughout the week you should add all admin activities that you’re planning to complete on a maintenance day, so that, when the day comes you know what needs to be done.

On Hold

Move here all activities where you’re waiting for someone or something to happen. This way you won’t forget them, but they won’t clutter your daily to-do list.
