Jaque Peterson

I have been learning how to say NO to jobs that I dont want to do and it REALLY feels good. I have been busier than I want to be anyway.
Jamie Terral
17:42
That is fantastic Jaque!
Jamie Terral
18:01

Sondra, please mute your audio! Thank you!
Jamie Terral
22:45
Multi-tasking to me is running a load of laundry or running the dishwasher while working. Ha-ha!
Heather Cannon
23:56
True! I do much better focusing on One thing at a time. But I sometimes get too engaged and can't stop!
Nancy Walenta
28:08
I have not time studied very well. But I do keep track of my time for the whole project. I like to Beat the Clock!
Jamie Terral
28:38
I love that Nancy!
Theresa Harmon
30:39
a separate stopwatch is a great idea because trying to use the one on your phone can become problematic if a family member calls, etc.
Jamie Terral
37:57
I have started putting my processes into Asana and that has helped me enormously.
Theresa Harmon
38:04
I've created a few processes like that for jobs I do often like cushions and half pleat valances
Audrey Ross
38:07
yes...I also lump together like tasks.
Nancy Walenta
38:07
I set alarms to remind me. Some days I have 6 alarms!
Theresa Harmon
38:22
Yes I have used Asana before too
Theresa Harmon
38:38
process software
Theresa Harmon
38:46
it's free
Marlene Moening
38:51
I have an order sheet that allows me to break a large project into the various parts. I like adding the number(time) to each project!
Theresa Harmon
40:53
Project Management software, they have a free version https://asana.com/
Nancy Walenta
41:27
Yes. I can forget once the alarm is set. I label the alarm. I set an alarm for this webinar.
Jamie Terral
42:26
I set my alarms for 1:55 pm for this webinar. Otherwise I can get caught up and miss it. I have a lot of those :55s set on my phone.
Heather Cannon
42:36
Awesome! Thanks Theresa & Jamie
Theresa Harmon
42:49
Asana - ah-suh-nuh
Theresa Harmon
44:46
Social media can be a time suck for sure😭
Sylvia Martin
45:58
my children ( grown)seem to think im available all day...how do you stop it....
Jane McLamara
48:11
Oh man I am so bad about working on my leisure time. I work on my computer while riding in the car or watching tv.
Michele Kincade
49:26
That’s a good one!
Heather Cannon
49:57
Under promise. Over deliver. I'm preaching to myself here. But hopefully a helpful quote.
Jane McLamara
50:25
yes it is
Jaque Peterson
50:33
I schedule a catch up day every couple weeks. That is a great buffer that is often needed when a designer needs a mistake fixed, or when an unexpected measure appointment needs to be done.
Jane McLamara
52:35
I was in my workroom at all hours of the day or week too. Your statements are very true to me.
Marlene Moening
53:54
I do the same- work all the time. Also a home business. I feel at this moment though that the deadlines I have require that extra time because things are taking longer than estimated...
Marlene Moening
57:18
time studies would be helpful
Karen Effs
58:35
yes. I hate it
Nancy Walenta
59:30
Not late for project deadlines but I'm late for appointments.
Jamie Terral
01:00:14
I am time-management challenged - all of the above. I continually work on this.
Heather Cannon
01:00:16
I am usually just on time. Not a minute before. Not good. Once in a while I'm late! But I try not to be late even if it means I stay up and pull an all- nighter!! Also, not good. I'll do just about anything to hit that deadline bc I want the work.
Tina Lampkin
01:00:30
I habitually work late so I can meet deadlines because I can’t say :no I can’t do this at the time required. I work wholesale
John Giles
01:01:31
I tell myself..."The dread is far worse than the act". When it comes to getting things done.
John Giles
01:01:39
Yes
Jamie Terral
01:01:52
That is a great idea, I forget about holiday deadlines.
Jaque Peterson
01:01:59
I always meet deadlines, I can’t stand to not do what I said I would do. But I have learned to either be a little vague on when they can expect a project, or pad the date enough that I can meet it.
Heather Cannon
01:02:40
John 👏 love that! Putting that quote up in my workroom!
Jamie Terral
01:03:31
Love that, John!
Karen Effs
01:06:47
I can't sense time so I have to set a timer. For me a hour feels like 5 mins.
Nancy Walenta
01:09:24
I just got a rush job so I added large amount for Rush. The client said Yes, go ahead!
Michele Kincade
01:10:24
Hahaha Nancy I add money to jobs I don’t want and then when I get it I kick myself!
Nancy Walenta
01:11:21
That's happened to me, too, Michele.
Michele Kincade
01:12:09
Thank you! Some eye opening ideas!
Marlene Moening
01:12:17
Thank you so much! Love the ideas!
Nancy Walenta
01:12:30
Thank you. So inspiring.
Sylvia Martin
01:12:30
thank you
Theresa Harmon
01:12:48
I'm going to order a stopwatch. Thanks so much for facilitating this discussion.
Jane McLamara
01:12:56
Thanks for a great session.
Jamie Terral
01:13:10

Heather Cannon
01:13:26
Thanks everyone!
