I spent the whole week recording the new Webform course for WebWash. I was hoping to record during the day but couldn’t because there was too much background noise.
Protip: when buying mics make sure you understand the difference between condenser and dynamic mics.
So I recorded during the night and edited and prepared videos during the day.
Preparation plays an important part when you record screencasts. By the end of the week, I had significant momentum. Prepare by day; record by night.
I spent half the week finishing a contract and the last two days outlining a new course on Webform for WebWash.
In the past, I’ve been terrible at sticking to deadlines while producing courses. So I gave myself two days to outline the course and made sure I was prepared to start recording it ASAP.
My goal was to start recording the following week instead I decided to start recording the videos on Friday. One thing I’ve learned is that if you give yourself 2 or 5 days to complete a task then it’ll take that long. So give yourself a tight deadline that you’re not comfortable with and sprint to get it finished.
