Making Every Minute Count
I began the process of revising my project at 9 am. By the time I was done, which means, I couldn't focus my eyes anymore, it was 10:30 pm. What went wrong?
The edits to the body of the text wasn't a problem, it was getting the attachments in place. I had created documents using text boxes, and they were separate from the main body of the text. So putting it all together turned out to be a nightmare.
Luckily for me, my husband came to the rescue and told me about scanning documents, primarily pdfs, as photos with our home scanner. The very scanner we've had for 3 years and I had no clue it could scan anything as a photo. It turned out to be a lifesaver. It meant being finished at 10:30 pm versus sometime this morning.
So what did I learn? Don't wait until Sunday to do things. I had the whole week, and I could have been working on the problems the whole week. Or got Kinko's to do it, whatever. Never wait to the crunch.
Sigh. Almost there.
