Making a Plan is Useless When You Don’t Stick to It.

I’m an expert at scheduling. I plan out my entire week every Sunday and abandon it by Monday afternoon. Now I’m trying to use some techniques I learned in project management courses to break down my tasks better and create better plans. Scheduling is sloppy when you don’t have a methodology to follow; I’ve half-heartedly used a few systems from the Internet before, but I think WBS and Gantt charts could be incredibly useful for long term projects. The mere act of putting that much work into defining and scheduling them could inspire me to stick to the plan more. We’ll see, I suppose.

I forgot to take my Adderall this morning so that paragraph is all I have the energy for this week. Talk to you later!

    1. Yeah for long-term projects, creating a Work Breakdown Sheet and using it to create a Gantt chart would be incredibly useful, even in your personal life. I plan to write more about this in the future if only to solidify it in my own mind. 🙂
