Welcome to my favvvvorite productivity hack (EVER) using two of my favorite tools: Trello* + Planyway.
This is how you can get your work out of our head, plan your week, maximize your time, and crush that productivity. 💪
I’ve long used Trello to manage my to-dos. Since we all have so much going on, it’s too easy to get overwhelmed. And by putting to-dos in Trello I can gain more peace of mind.
Using a tool like Trello means there are not so many things to do or things I’m worried I’ll forget about bopping around in my brain. They’re all safe and sound in a Trello card.
Step 1: Brain dump ALL of your to-dos.
Step 2: Schedule everything
The Planyway App is the (GENIUS) connection between your to-dos and your actual calendars.
I’m not talking about setting a due date for a card in Trello. I’m talking about your task actually showing up in YOUR calendar.
Check it out –
Open Planyway and simply drag your cards to the spot they need to be on your calendar:
Now look how they show up in my calendar on my phone.
Of course you’ll need to get all of this hooked up (think: connecting all the calendars) but it’s totally worth it.
Yes, setting up your calendars is a pain. But it is necessary for planning to be able see ALL of my calendars inside Trello + Planyway. And then the events from Trello + Planyway also show up in my browser calendar and on my phone.
Two-way synching is a beautiful thing.

The podcast I mention in the training is Rachel Rodgers’ Million Dollar Badass Episode 017: How to Price Your Services to Avoid Burnout and Leave a Legacy. You can find it on Apple, Stitcher, or via a transcript. Mad props to Rachel for making transcripts available. I’m studying this content like I’m in grad school.
