A few weeks ago the teachers had a discussion with us about our productivity. It was the most “Dad” talk we’ve had all year. In the discussion they told all of us to write three personal tips for our productivity.

Organizing my time, when I first set this goal I was all over the place with time, I would spend thirty minutes on one task and move on. I now schedule dedicated chunks of time to finish the task, this decision has made me more productive and successful with my B tasks.

Trying not to multitask was the easiest goal to accomplish, I just don’t talk to much when I’m in the zone and working. This drastically fixed my productivity by making one task a priority

I always wanted to make sure my project is going right, so I always talk out an issue as soon as they arise with the teachers.

Conference

After my project conference I felt like I had a lot of work ahead of me. We had talked about how many tasks were still left for me, while also giving me feedback about how my work has been going. We also changed up my timeline completely, I had underestimated how much time it would take to create each song, luckily Hansen created a rough draft on what my timeline should actually look like, that made it a lot easier to plan out everything I was looking for.

Hansen made my timeline very reasonable and well constructed, it was exactly what I wanted. He gave me tons of time on my production, and less time on my publishing and releasing. The song should be more important then any release you could do (in my opinion). Although I’m very certain I will be able to create more then three songs, the time line will help me focus in and make these three songs really good.

Since the conference I have written a good copy of my timeline, essentially alliterating what Hansen was writing about. I have started to finish my third song and I’m well on my way to mixing.
