Do a Gantt Chart for your remaining weeks. These are simple ways to plan out your time and block in tasks. I’d like to see these on your blogs.
What I Learnt:
To start off I never thought that Gantt charts could be useful in a scenario other than coding but now it has been brought up I imagine Gantt charts are great for any project that is worth doing. This week I definitely learned that when I start a project I should treat it like I’m doing it for someone else. Start by asking questions and develop it from there. I think using this with myself will help me understand what I want from the website and allow me to create a better representation of myself. I also th9ink this will help in working out how others want to represent themselves.
