Do you feel overwhelmed trying to keep track of your daily activities? Afraid that you'll forget something important?
Most people feel that there's just not enough time in a day to do everything they need to do, never mind what they WANT to do. Life is a rush from point A to point B, meeting deadlines and milestones in-between, and they associate a lot of stress with day-to-day activities.
But I'm here to show you how you can have less stress and more fun in your life!
Hello, my name is Gerry Kirk.
I have been coaching and training individuals, teams and organizations for 10 years using Agile, Lean and Kanban. I have seen literally hundreds of people transform their lives with Personal Kanban™ through my workshops and individual client engagements.
Only a handful of people in the world actively consult or train in Personal Kanban™ and I am honored to be one of them. Personal Kanban™ forms an integral part of not only my business, but also my personal life. Thanks to Jim Benson and Tonianne DeMaria Barry for writing the Personal Kanban™ book and sharing this powerful tool.
Hundreds of people have had great results with Kanban under my coaching guidance and I guarantee that you will see immediate results with the Kanban system, too.
This is what some of my clients have to say:
I am pleasantly surprised by this course! When I enrolled, I had never heard about Personal Kanban before. Nevertheless, I was eager to learn about this work management system, because I was feeling increasingly more overwhelmed and frustrated by my schedule and never ending pile of work. [I found] this course was a joy to take: it was engaging, easy to understand and follow, and Gerry Kirk's passion for Personal Kanban is quite contagious! ~ Jennifer Gehly
"I had never heard of Kanban before but once I did this course I realised that it was exactly what I had been looking for. At a glance now I can see what needs to be done and the priority of those tasks. No more 'To Do' lists in the back of my diary! I feel less stressed and more organised. Highly recommended, thanks!" ~ Jennifer Bailey
"I find that the clutter in my head has drastically reduced." ~ Mandar Maranthe
"Gerry [reveals] how to continue to improve your flow of work. In advanced topics, he shows you how to discover more about the how and why of what you choose to do and learn a bit about yourself along the PK journey. ~ Mark Kilby

Make prioritization effective, without making it feel like a chore.
Celebrate your accomplishments, and increase motivation to get things done.
The system is simple, because I understand that you don't have a lot of time to learn to use complicated systems. The system is based on two simple rules:
Visualize all your work

Start with a proven, highly effective board design I've refined by working with hundreds of individuals and teams. This is the board design I use myself when getting started on a new venture with others.
Included is a template file you can import into LeanKit, my preferred digital tool. You need the full version of LeanKit, which you get for free for the first 30 days. If that isn't an option, use the board editor to create the one shown. If you are using a physical board, it's simple to go ahead and copy the one shown.
We all have routine work that needs to get done. There are also new habits/routines we want to establish, like going to the gym or learning a musical instrument. Finally, how much of our capacity do these activities demand?
