I am simultaneously a planner and a non-planner. That is, I like to plan some things way far in advance, and for others, last-minute is just fine. One of my other traits, however, is to get overwhelmed if I have a lot of planning to do. And right now, I have a lot of planning I need to do. That's where others come in--folks who can suggest strategies and ways I can lay out what I need to do without becoming overwhelmed.
Projects at work, for the kids, for teaching, for the fellowship I attend, for myself, and for my house. How do I mesh them all together? I'm considering using Project for this, but honestly, the format somewhat overwhelms me and I don't really know how to get started. Part of me thinks I just need to get some big white paper, lay out everything, and go from there. Maybe with crayons. Figure out where the chunks go and how I might organize them. Or index cards. I just think I need something physical to help me to get started.
Anyone else have ideas? What do you do to help you to plan?
