Emergent Task Planner 2007 Updates

Filed under ThinkingTools

Example A few people are using the experimental Emergent Task Planner sheets, so I’ve updated them for 2007 and added a B&W version.

So what is Emergent Task Planning? It’s a more directed version of Emergent Task Tracking, which is the form that helps you figure out where your time is disappearing to. Emergent Task Planning, on the other hand, attempts to guide your effort for the day by using time boxing:

  • list the things you need to do for the day
  • estimate how long they’ll take (up to 4 hours…if it’s longer, break it up)
  • figure out where in the day you’ll do them
  • block out the time, and stick to the schedule

Think of it as a quickie day planning sheet.

You can read more about the design, or just download the forms below if you already know what you want to do with them. UPDATE: I keep forgetting that the ETP grew out of another form, the Menu of the Day. If you're curious about the schedule grid, check out the original MotD article.
