Welcome back to part 3 in the Project Planning Series.
(Oh and please remember if you’re on my list you’ll get a bonus email which finishes this series off)
So in part 1 and 2 we have defined what project we are starting and we have taken a real look at *why* we haven’t got the project done yet.
Today we will finally make it doable!
By breaking the project down into easy manageable steps and by adding these steps down into our planner.
You have already accomplished important steps to make it happen
In part 2 you found out the REAL reason behind not accomplishing the project and now you can work around it and/or completely get rid of those reasons stopping you.
Here are the steps we will take to get things done.
- Write down your major events (like birthdays, holidays, vacations and others)
- Break down the project into little manageable steps (the smaller the step the manageable it becomes)
- Schedule those steps into your planner (CRUCIAL PART! It *needs* to get into your planner)
- Repeat every week or once a month as you wish until you complete it all
Make a commitment to yourself to getting the project done
By committing I really mean it! Get rid of all distractions that drag you down (like watching Netflix, Pinterest/Facebook browsing, etc.)
The most important part here is to plan realistically.
There is no point planning it in if you know your week will be full to the brim. If you have too much on your plate then it will not get done. You will be putting yourself under a lot of stress if you try to add your project in without taking something out of your planner/life first. At the end of the week/month, you will just feel like a failure. So please be realistic and kind to yourself when setting up the deadlines and your new routines.
Extra tip: A safe way to avoid the trap above is by leaving some wiggle room as you plan your days.
Over to you
How is your routine going to look like now that you are committed to finishing your project?
