Well, of the gazillion hours, what do you spend the majority of them on? Use
that as a guideline to know if you had everything up to control to that

f'instance...right now, I'm spending the bulk of my time getting all my
images resized and optimized. I screwed up and waited to the end, instead of
making sure that when I created an image, I finished the image.

Hello all,

I had a big deadline last week. I got it done on time, but by golly, I had
to work a gazillion hours of overtime the last two weeks to accomplish it.
It seems that with just about every deadline I have, I go through the last
minute crush. And it doesn't seem to matter how well I planned the doc. I
felt that I had planned this last doc very well. Does that happen to any
of you? Or am I just an idiot when it comes to scheduling? If any of you
has a technique to avoid around the last minute crush, or a way of planning
for the unplannable, or a crystal ball to see the unforeseen, I'd like to
hear about it .
