Spreadsheets

This week, I decided to compile a spreadsheet containing all my open projects. Keeping my projects organized has always been a challenge for me, because there’s little to no visual indication of their completion status for me to assess. Instead, I’ve always gauged a project’s completion based on a simple educated guess – which has not been the best of methods. With a spreadsheet, I have an open, versatile and organized method for keeping track of whatever it is I’m working on (spoiler alert, it’s almost all music).

It started as a means to jot down potential future ideas for projects. I’ve been working to reinvigorate my YouTube channel, but it’s difficult to do that when there’s nothing tangible to work with, so my ideas went onto this spreadsheet. Writing them down makes them tangible. It was after seeing those ideas all organized that I realized I could organize and track my current projects in the same way, as a means of visualizing progress and tasks yet to do.

I think it’s important to be organized, but I’m realizing now that it’s probably just as (or more) important to recognize when you are unorganized. That’s where I’m at this week, a little more organized and looking with slightly fresher perspective.
