How to Use a Perpetual Map Template

A Perpetual Map Template can help you keep track of your processes and tasks in an organized and visual way. To get the most out of it, follow these steps:

1. Identify your goals and tasks

Start by writing down your main goal and then brainstorm tasks that are necessary to achieve it. Be sure to get as detailed as possible and include any sub-tasks that need to be completed.

Use a Doc in ClickUp to brainstorm and list all the tasks you need to accomplish.

2. Group tasks into categories

Once you have a list of tasks, it’s time to group them into categories. For example, if your goal is to launch a new product, you might have categories such as research, design, production, and marketing..

Use Board View in ClickUp to make a visual representation of your tasks and group them into different categories.

3. Prioritize tasks

Once you have your tasks categorized, you can start prioritizing them based on importance and urgency. This will help you focus on the tasks that need to be completed first and ensure that you don’t miss any deadlines.

Use Goals in ClickUp to prioritize your tasks by setting deadlines and tracking progress.

4. Create the map

Now it’s time to create the Perpetual Map. Start by laying out the categories and tasks in a visual way, with the main goal at the top and the sub-tasks branching off from there..

Use the Gantt Chart in ClickUp to create a visual representation of your Perpetual Map.
