Week 2

Week 2

Bryan Nehl - Observations

I did note that different types of reading take different amounts of time. Specifically, I found that I was able to read more pages in the text book faster than a paper or article such as the one on the PSP we read in week 1. I have found I have less interrupt time reading the text when I am not tired.

I am certain that I did not get time recorded that went towards the writing of the software manager paper. I would have a thought in the midst of doing something else and just quickly jot it down. Lots of less than a minute type of things that just added up.

A ten minute investment in learning a bit of Excel paid big dividends in terms of reduced time needed for putting together the weekly chart.

This week I spent around two more hours with the course than last week. There was noticeably more reading and video time. In addition there was the first paper.

I anticipate less time with posting the journal to the web this week. The web activity time is estimated for the purposes of including it in the chart and journal. I will record actual time in my journal and if there is significant difference, I will note it next week.
