My challenge is the #workspace previously created to support this effort still has a lot of projects, section headings and tasks.
Has anyone put together a good process, with as few manual steps as possible, to #migrate everything over to the new account?
However, as it not a two way sync (a feature request I wish Asana would implement ASAP e.g. GQueues does this very well), I'm not able to relabel the task so I can reorganize the list by task title (or date but that's another issue) from GCal.
Here's my workaround, from within Asana:
As Google lists "All Day" tasks by alpha-numeric Title, I've use the following code for some time to reorg by priority (i.e. those tasks I should do 1st on my list):
A01., A02., A03., B01., B02., B03., C01., ...
From within Asana, when I review all tasks assigned to me within a workspace, I now prefix those task titles with this code. i.e.:
A01. Post Task "Priority" tip and trick to Asana G+
(yes I really did add this task during my nightly review last night :-)
Now, with the projects set to sync from GCal, when I start my day I see a list of All Day tasks that looks something like this:
A01. Post Task "Priority" tip and trick to Asana G+
Now, I just quickly scan my GCal list and start knocking off tasks beginning at the top of the list.
If I need to re-prioritize, I click the link from within the GCal "event", and fromAsana modify the priority "prefix" code. If I need to change the date to a different day, I do that from within Asana too.
Ergo, for efficiency, and process flow, I'd prefer 2 way sync so, as I'm reviewing my tasks for the day from within GCal, I can make changes from within GCal ;-) It is what it is, at least for now ;-)
Hope the above is of help to some of you who've also had a need to not just list but also prioritize tasks.
You can use Yesware for free by clicking this link (and I'll get some more free trackings :-):
I hope it helps you, too!
Am I just missing something or is it not possible to copy a project and it's tasks to another workspace? For example, a lot of my projects created are re-usable for different workspaces yet I can't seem to find a way to copy and move them to a workspace other than where I created them.
If I haven't had a brain fart, and this is the case, can anyone recommend an easy way to do this?
The link goes to a public version of my checklist. In the description field, there's a detailed explanation of how I use it with priority headings to help organize. In summary:
Each time you go grocery shopping, make a copy of this list, uncheck what you need and record what you've purchased. Add comments as appropriate (i.e. brand preference, liked, yuck don't buy again, etc).
Hope it's of help to some of you.
Here's two ways to reuse the top liter plastic soda bottle.
1) Remove top and use funnel to pour liquids, powders, juice mix, etc into containers.
2) if you don't have a clamp or tie twist:
2a) remove top
2b) twist and slide bag of anything you want to reseal (rice, flour, rolls, etc), upward through bottle top opening
2c) fold bag back over top, screw bottle top back on :)
3) Bonus use: remove top, place right side up on kitchen counter top and rest your whisk, spatula or other kitchen gadget through opening while cooking :-)
Let's face it, the biggest challenge of any task management system is eventually you get overwhelmed by the very thing it's suppose to facilitate ... TASKS!
One of the many things I love about Asana is how you can use tags for GTD "context" methodology.
For example, think of all those "little" things you need to get done each day yet, at the end of the day, few were completed because they got lost in all the "noise" of the day.
How many times do you find yourself in between meetings, conference call, waiting on a client, need a break from your "big" project, etc. and find yourself with 15 minutes free to do "whatever". Yet suddenly wondering what you can or should knock out in this period of time.
In Asana, here's what I do:
I have a list of "context" tags that are time specific.
<3m, <5m, <15m, <30m, <60m, <90m, <180m, >1D, >3D, >1W
OK, some of you may think I've gone a bit overboard on the use of tags, especially with the Day Week ones, for what's estimated to complete concrete, singular tasks. They're included to reflect how time "context" tags can be used in projects and tasks with sub-tasks when planning out one's week. Sorry, I digress ;-)
What is great is when I have some unexpected "slack" time, say 15 minutes, I just click on the <15m tag and quickly pick from the list and knock of one of those pesky little tasks I've been meaning or need to get done today.
At the end of the day I rarely say to myself "Damn, I didn't get any of those little, yet important/urgent, things done today!"
Hope this #tip is of help to some of you.
