Coming Up for Air

So it’s been 10 days since I’ve added an entry, but a ton has happened since then.  I received materials to finish up a course and have been spending most of my time getting the course ready for the summer semester. 

This reminds me of a few things about my job.  There are busier times and right before the opening of the semester is one.  This may seem obvious, but it always surprises me how busy things can get.  In any case, I feel like there has to be a way to not get so consumed by the craziness.  I thought in January that John Buckwalter and I had a plan that would work.  We decided to set up our tasks in the Google calendar based on a document shared by Louise Sharrar, but that has not worked.  Things are still getting done, but the process is less proactive and more reactive.  I’m thinking that we need to start using the Oracle calendar to establish milestones. 

Any thoughts from the group?

    I am not sure what part of the process is failing you, or if the solution lies in changing technology, but I will point you to basecamp and gqueues as two project management solutions to consider.
