Delay Commitment

vs. Tasks

Tasks = "Control"

Kanban = "Value" and "Progression"

Lean Principles Still Apply

Inappropriate for "Epics"

"Epics" = Large Tasks e.g "Sort Finances", "Become an Astronaut". Very valid desires in life, but do not fit in to the tasks model well. Too much delay = loss of flow. Rarely reach implementation.
