Get your team together
It is dangerous to go alone! Choose a number of trusted friends and volunteers to work with you on your GGJ adventure.
Delegation is important. Only a few tasks are absolutely must-do, but the more help you can get, the better. Assemble a team of trusted friends and colleagues who you know you can rely on to help get the job done.
Sometimes your jammers can also be your volunteers / helpers, if you ask them nicely and the task reasonable, but remember to set expectations and deadlines as well as treating volunteers kindly as their time is valuable. It is fine to hold people accountable for things they have commited to do for you.
