Setting up the « Eisenhower Matrix » framework with my trello tasks

I’ve no idea of the efficiency alone, but it combines very nicely with my existing flows based on a custom set of Kanban columns on Trello.

I was already pretty efficient into defining the equivalent of the DO and DECIDE columns (in my own way); this workflows considerably help me to define the two last columns: DELEGATE and DELETE

Start the "paleo diet" experiment

I went to my dietetician this morning. I decided to switch from the “keto diet” to the “Paleo diet”.

My plans are:

  • experiment alternative diets to have a better understanding of my body take the best lessons from all of them
  • find other diets that I like, so I can switch later (either because of lassitude or based on seasons)
  • switch to a new diet (or to keto again) in 6 months
  • define a repeatable plan/pattern in about 1 year
