The Agile Method To Organize Your Life

The Agile Method To Organize Your Life

The Agile prioritization techniques help us break tasks into tiny subtasks and then rank them from top priority to least priority.

  • It is hard to prioritize a long list of tasks, all of which seem important.
  • Completing a task, no matter how insignificant, releases dopamine inside our brains, giving it a feel-good reward.
  • The Agile method makes large tasks easier to do and makes us more productive.

The Three Elements Of Agile

For any task to be completed, there are three basic elements: time, scope and budget.

  • We generally expect that the task will be completed on time, with the required scope and within the budget.
  • However, if the timeframe and the budget is fixed, a task might have to be flexible in terms of scope.

Example:If while creating an app, the product owner has 100 requirements to be fulfilled, the development team can only complete a few of them if time and budget constraints are there.

Basic Agile Prioritization Technique

Whether one is planning their wedding or building an online portal, there is a multitude of tasks that have to be completed on time and within the budget that has been set.

The Agile method proposes a ranked list of priorities to accomplish the same.

Example: If there are 10 tasks in the list, one can rank each one with a number from one to ten. Only one number is allotted to a task so that two tasks cannot have the same level of priority.

The Second Layer Of Priority: Criticality Level

There are many tasks in which we might be inclined to assign the same level of priority as there is no way one task is less important than the other.

In this case, we need to assign a criticality level to the task, assigning one of the four levels:

  1. Critical
  2. High
  3. Medium
  4. Low

The ones with a high priority ranking and a high criticality level are to be done first and foremost, followed by lower levels and priorities. It is best to work with prioritization and criticality together.

Breaking Down The Tasks

The core technique of achieving progress is to break down tasks into small, doable tasks.

  • One large task can appear daunting and undoable, but breaking it down to small subtasks can help us assign different levels of priority and criticality to the subset.
  • It helps to use an app that lets us set color codes and reminders to our to-do list.
  • The Agile Prioritization technique is helpful in professional and personal projects, like planning a training session, or remodeling your house.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
