While I usually live my life in a state of creative chaos, I'm actually fantastic at organization. I was looking at my list of Christmas and birthday projects still left to do, and admittedly, I was getting a little worried. So - time to whip out those organizational super-powers!
Today, using excel, I mapped out all the projects on my list (including ones I've already completed - just to make sure no one was missed, and give myself a little ego boost) Then I mapped out all the days until Christmas.
Then, I scheduled which projects I'll be working, on which days. Those are the little light blue and pink boxes (blue for projects worked over my lunch hour, pink for at home). This is just page one - the calendar goes all the way to December 31st.
Naturally, it's not set in stone, but it gives me a much better idea of what's left to do, and how much time I have left to accomplish it.
I'm feeling much better now. I'm sure something will come along to throw a screw into the works - but it's always nice to have a plan!
