During the next few months, I will be working on several new projects for my final semesters at school.
- Building a website for Students For Environmental Action
- Expand The Justin Reed Show’s reach by transferring his audio archives to iTunes
- A third project involving in creating an online video series
This will require doing something that I haven’t done in months: Strategize.
All day, I have been walking around the school, thinking about how I’m going to manage all my projects. It’s going to be very tough because I am a perfectionist, even when I don’t try to be.
I’ll explain my this situation by going back a few weeks prior to this blog post.
It was the end of my capstone class and me, my professor, and some classmates were talking about the videos we saw during the summer (or at least I was).
As we said are goodbyes, my professor asked if he could speak with me.
While the rest of the students headed out the back door, we head out the front.
Walking to the around the business building, we discussed some of the concerns he had with my schedule for the semester (I am currently taking 18 credit hours at the time of this post).
I told him not to worry and that I’ll be fine, but I was a bit scared.
Before we ended the conversation, he said that I was somewhat of a perfectionist.
I don’t mean to be one. I don’t want to be one.
Perfection is an illusion. An illusion of which I’ve seen to have adopted from my pasts.
Living at Nashville (my Nashville) is not were I want to spend my life after I get old and gray. Falling in love with computers is what made me want to major in New Media, so even if I wasn’t perfect, my content could be.
But that’s adding unnecessary stress
So when I have to do the next few projects, I have to work smart instead of working hard.
During the recent lecture, my professor discuss some time management programs that might help me.
“Instead of listing out major tasks, dumb them down to steps and plan them accordingly”, he said.
So that’s what I’ll do.
I just signed up for to Asana to help me with managing the two projects that I have to accomplish by the end of the semester.
I didn’t want to turn this into a personal blog post.
I’m just writing that I need to get organize.
That’s all for today.
