Jour Fixe

Complexity: 2/5

Background & Purpose

Due to the trend of digital nomadism, we sometimes lack face-to face time with each other. A Jour Fixe can be the simple agreement to work together at an agreed time and with agreed frequency. Teamwork will be fostered when all team members try to be present at the same time, for example for half a day a week. Meeting times can be reduced and work can become more efficient by applying this practice.

Liquid Participation

Liquid Participation

Time frame:Ongoing usage

Complexity: 4/5

Background & Purpose

How do we make sure things get done when tasks are self-assigned, working in teams with flat structure combined with fixed deadlines? What’s beyond the carrot/stick extrinsic motivator to get things done? We created and remind ourselves of this practice in times of high workload, uneven feelings of commitment among the team or when a conflict arises.

Running To Do List

Running To Do List

Time frame:
Ongoing usage

Complexity: 1/5
More info: http://

Background & Purpose

I keep experimenting with To Do Lists and — in terms of digital tools — have used everything from Google Tasks, via Trello, to Wunderlist. What works best for me right now is a paper list. It’s a pleasure to check or cross something off your list.

I use an A5 notebook and each double page equals one week. I break up bigger projects into a list of tasks, put that list on a Post-It note, and add the note to the week where I need to work at it. I then transfer single project and regular tasks (like editing) to my daily To Do list.

Manage My Energy

Manage My Energy

Complexity: 1/5

Background & Purpose

I manage my energy by working on what I feel most motivated to do or what is urgent and important. I use the Eisenhower Matrix to prioritize tasks. I try to delegate or eliminate tasks that I don’t enjoy doing and that are neither urgent nor important.

Clear Inbox

Clear Inbox

Time frame:
Ongoing usage

Complexity: 1/5
More info: http://

Background & Purpose

I clear my inbox and key communication channels (Slack) once every morning, so I know I am not missing out on anything important. I spend up to one hour responding to emails, comments, and messages. Tasks are transferred to my To Do list. I use Boomerang and Slack’s reminder features to bring back messages I want to deal with later. With that out of the way, I can focus on getting work done. Checking my inbox or social media during the rest of the day becomes a reward for completing tasks from my To Do list.
