  9. 9. Mantra: How to eat an elephant? Bite by bite! Value: Gain more self-respect by tackling all my to-dos in time Waste: Waiting Obstacles/root causes: Fear of a long to-do list prevents me from starting any task on the list Actions: I use a Kanban Board and apply the 5Ds (Do, Delay, Delegate, Delete, Divide) of waiting waste reduction. Next step: Immediately after creating the Kanban board, I work on the very first entry of the WIP column, but only for five minutes. Measurement: Number of items on Kanban board, checked weekly. WIP<=3, To-Do <= 10within two weeks from now Update: I will review my to-do behaviour in four weeks from now. Don’t use A3 if A6 is enough, don’t use A6 if you can put it on a tiny sticky note
