Task Progress Tracker 2010 Updates

Task Progress Tracker

Project-level to-do list tracking

The Task Progress Tracker (or TPT) is a Project Task Manager, where “project” is loosely defined as a “set of related tasks”. The idea behind the TPT is to provide a methodology to break down a project into shorter-duration subtasks that take under 4 hours. The design of the form encourages estimate then track use of the same piece of paper; first you write down all the tasks, then you make your estimates, then you follow through. It’s like a To-Do list, except the forms also track effort made against each item, 15 minutes at a time.

The 2010 edition has had several cosmetic improvements to increase contrast when printing. The Power User Edition has been almost completely redesigned, using refined elements from some of the newer forms I’ve done.

    The upload must have messed up. I reuploaded it, and it’s OK now…thanks for the heads up, Christina :-)

    Hi Dave,
    I really appreciate the resources I struggle with time management in a big way, especially juggling multiple projects.

    The quote I recently read by Phillip Roth, The road to hell is paved with works in progress.

    2007 felt a bit that way so 2008 hopefully will be better with your great resources.

    Many thanks
    Michael

    David,
    I LOVE the Destructomatic version. I use it frequently and I love the inventive way of thinking about my tasks at hand. The graphics on that are really neat too!
    Keep up the great work.

    This is a great form, especially for an academic like me who often works under loose self-imposed deadlines. Would it be possible to create a downloadable form along the lines of your emergent task timer? I’m printing out so many copies now that I’m sure my carbon footprint has ballooned even as I’ve become more efficient. Many thanks for your work!

    Hi David,

    Have you developed anything to manage a Backlog using Scrum development?  The task centric approach assumes that one was able to break down a narrative/story/goal into a unit of actionable work.  However, It would be useful to know if you have something to manage something at a higher level:  A User Story knows nothing of time, but only story points.

    I’ve been using these sheets off and on for a while now. I’m such a mess when it comes to desk clutter though.

    Thanks for putting these out for us creative geeks. I’ll definitely pick up the packs off of Amazon here soon.

    Hi David,

    Stumbled across you via Lifehack I think it was, or possibly Zen Habits…either way I’m glad I found you – I’m having immense fun with all of your forms, and it’s really made me pull my sox up!

    Keep up the excellent work,

    Best regards,

    Hi David – Your work is just awesome.  Discovered this while looking for free 7 Habits forms.  I just attended the 7 Habits of Highly Effectively People and you provide very useful planning tools.
