Personal Timeline

You need complete the “Making Time” sheet AFTER you complete the Breaking Down the Entry forms.

Establish a realistic amount of time that it will take you complete the tasks required.

Example: Do you have to collect data overtime?

Example: Do you need to start a documented accomplishment in September?

Take into consideration our workshop schedule, but realize that you may and should start entries before we discuss them.
