Implementing Kanban is not hard. You just need some space for your “Kanban Board” (if you use a physical board). Your Kanban Board is divided into three vertical colums, namely: Backlog/To-do, Doing and Done.
In “Doing” are all the to-do’s you are working on right now or that you plan on working immediately. Preferably you organize the Doing column based on priority, so you can glance at them and see what tasks needs to be done first.
In “Backlog” are all to-do’s and tasks that you are not working on right now, but that you will need to do eventually.
“Done” holds, as you might have guessed, your completed works. Seeing how much work you have done and completed can be a huge motivation. It’s a good thing to write down your accomplishments.
