This last little while things have been extremely busy for me and part of it was, I was learning how to manage a major project that I was project manager but also the person doing the work. I must admit that some days were better than others. I have learned a lot through this process, and now it's time to sit back and document what I learned and things I can improve on next time I do this.
I did learn the importance of having a list of all the tasks that lay ahead of you, as well as a deadline. I almost missed the deadline, but am happy to say that I was able to complete the project on time. Now over the next couple of weeks it will be fine-tuning the work done, but at least the major project is done and implemented.
What I have learned through all of this is that sometimes you need to sit back and look at things a number of different ways, otherwise you will get lost and miss a lot of steps. Having someone that you can talk things over with really does help, and you can learn from each other as you go along. Yes, I was the person doing the work for the most part, but I did have my partner around to bounce ideas off of as well as learn from.
Now it's time to look at all the other things that I have to complete and work on getting things reorganized so that I can accomplish everything else that needs my attention. I have learned a lot and still have things to learn, but one major project is now complete so now onto the next.
