I use StoryBoard to plan my life, too

I use index cards on the wall or board to plan various errands just like you do in Agile software development. It is very effective. It motivated me to get the stories done. It gives me a sense of direction. And I feel good when stories are done.

InfoQ posted an article "Fun: Planning your Life with Index Cards" with the picture of Mike Mason's taskboard in his blog.

In my case, I put estimated time, too. Then I fit stories in the time available. That allows me which one has a higher priority and which one is non-essential so I can drop.

And after done, I put how long the story took. That gives me an instant retrospective that helps me to get better in what I do in my life.
