This Summer has been crazy and now it's down to the wire to put on a good show in August. I have a great sense of how much time it takes to do things so when it's time to whip out the Project Management tools, I know enough to do it.
Well, yesterday I sat down to think about all of the parts of the things that need to be done. When I really thought about the dependencies I realized that I needed to gantt this one. I got the chart done and found that there isn't really any wiggle room in the schedule. If I'm going to have a finished booth and lots of cloth to show in it without absolutely killing myself, I need to do things very carefully.
In this chart, orange items are mine to do, green ones are Wispr's.
You'll notice that I'm working super hard on both the booth and the cloth with few items to do as the deadline approaches? That's because I know how things work. Something will come up that takes all of my time at some point in this process. I'm just leaving the space so that this can happen and it doesn't make my whole world crumble. See, experience is worth something after all...
