Dates, lists, timelines and all that time management jazz is almost always on the top of our list. To have one visual that breaks down the entire components of a project and represents the sequence of events, is a handy tool that keeps clients informed and the project on target. From experience, being able to see these dates and in a visual form is a billion times simpler than concocting a wild and probably inaccurate framework in one’s head. From logo design to business cards and everything in between, timelines have indeed helped us manage many a project along the way.
Don’t get us wrong, timelines don’t work for everybody, and that’s OK. Managing your time and projects is no mean feat, especially if your days contain an influx of work, making it easy to inadvertently switch into the mode known as procrastination (aka avoidance behaviour) and begin dreaming about what your evening meal might be. The amount of times you put pen to paper, scrawling list after list with the same content, hoping that there will be enough time in the day to commence or conclude. So maybe instead of avoiding the timeline (like you avoided accepting the Facebook Timeline till they forced it upon us), embrace it with open arms and see just how much more organized it allows you to become. You may even transform into one of those people that use a diary -goodness.
