When it comes to making plans for myself, let’s just say I’m not a fan. When it comes to making plans for projects, events or logistics for user experiences, I can go all day, get creative with it and overall enjoy the experience.
So here I am on day two of my challenge (missed part 1, find it here), and I have to say I’m a little overwhelmed, not from what needs to be done but from the excitement of all that can be done. So while I want to perfect everything, and add a bunch of features, I’m reminded that from start to finish of this challenge, I only have 10 days to complete things. And considering that today is day two of the challenge, that leaves 8 days to wrap everything up. No pressure at all. With that said, let’s hop into some details of day 2.
This is my project plan outline. I elected to use Asana, mainly because it’s free and for this particular project it had everything I needed.
Now you may notice that instead of breaking things down by when they are due, I chose to break them down into a few key areas. My reasoning for this was to make sense of what I needed to do in each section related to my project. Certain items were more administrative related than others and I wanted to have a way to keep track of those separately.
With a plan in place, the idea now goes from being just a concept I was excited about, to something that I can now track my progress so things don’t feel as if I’m just doing things to do them. I’m also not a fan of busy work, we’ll touch more on that at a later date.
I’m pretty confident about the overall state of things with this challenge. I’ve already learned a lot and haven’t even reached the good parts yet.
With that said, time to wrap up some late night work and prepare for day 3 of the challenege.
