Well, with all of the great suggestions, I have my new plan in place.
In general, I have broken it down to 3 catagories (boat, provisions, logistics) each has multiple subcatagories. I moved my old excell list to a word program and each subcatagory will automatically print on a seperate page. The individual to-do items are then listed in order of importance so I just need to concentrate on the first few items of each page. I have placed the list in a small binder with pocket folders so that I can keep reviews
, printouts, drawings and whatevers with the appropriate list.
After I got all of my projects, purchases, and dilemmas catogorized and prioritized, I made a chart with the months untill we leave across the top and the subcatagories down the side. I then filled in when each catagory needs to be completed. Having this visual is really great! I was able to take into account things that I wanted done before the next shake down cruise
, haulout, and even took weather
into account. (my colorful version of a "critical path plan"- I love it)
In writing this sounds incredibly complicated, but really it is just two documents that I have saved on the computer, can access and update from my Itouch (my version of 3x5's), and print a working copy from.
Zeehag, I know I probably just made your head
spin-sorry. I gotta have my list!
Now, I've just got to get back to completing my projects!!!
