Quite happy Oct 4, 2020

I'm quite happy with my method as it seems to be working well enough. I’m so used to it that I wouldn’t dream of changing it. I abide by the rule "Don't fix it if it ain't broken".

Keep it simple Oct 4, 2020

My method of project management is a simple calendar where I enter deadlines and word counts, that's all I need to see if I have room for more or should decline more work. I could say that I am deliriously happy with this but in fact my emotion level is rather low about this, so I chose "indifferent".

Happy + Changes Oct 4, 2020

I'm quite happy, and I have all the information I need, and more. However, I still have several different spreadsheets and not everything is automated. I'm feeding a database for that purpose, but I haven't had time to compile it all in the same place, yet.

Other Oct 4, 2020

I don't really have one per se. Or if I do have one, I seldom if ever think about it.
