We all yearn to get more done in our day to day pursuits. The problem is it’s actually quite difficult to finish anything significant in our meager twenty four hour boundaries which we are presented with by life. The answer to this predicament lies in the idea of working on big projects over time. You must break the project down into small bite sized increments which you tackle on at a time day to day. By applying this method you unlock the ability to get much more done if you manage to keep your enthusiasm high in addition to focusing on what matters. Today I would like to share with you some methodology which I apply to complete projects in my own life. I will also reveal to you the recipes for crafting an ideal project.
The key concept is momentum. As you work each day it will build and grow and so will your productivity. Now there is one entity which will poison and kill your productivity. This poison goes by the name of: Stagnation. Stagnation is brought forth by stopping work on a project suddenly and unexpectedly. Even if you have a justifiable reason to do so, it will still dissolve momentum at an exponential rate. The core idea I am trying to relay is that action must be taken on a consistent basis if you wish to accomplish anything. There is much more I must elaborate on if I am to create a fully conclusive guide to tackling and completing the big goals which we all lust to overcome. If this single article doesn’t satisfy you, fret not! I have many more on similar topics. Also here is a not so secret secret for you: Once you complete one project the next one will be much easier. Some of the reasoning behind this theory is that once you complete a task you will be left with a flood of dopamine which will have you eager for more.
I would now like to talk about other methodology which can be applied when facing any adversity in relation to the completion of your big project. The method I am about to share screams simplicity but it is more efficient at keeping morale high than you may think. The idea is to create a list of priorities in order to organize your project. The assets of the project which you list with the highest priorities should be the things which will push the project forward the most. From then on all you need to do is stay focused on the tasks with the highest priority in relation to the project regardless of which adversity comes your way!
The next thing I would like to cover is the creation and planning stages of project undertaking. There is nothing worse than climbing a mountain just to discover that the prize you find at the top is not what you were looking for in the first place. This is similar to spending loads of time completing a long and tedious project just to realize that it was a waste of time. This is why it is essential for you to only take on projects which will benefit and push your life forwards (or at the very least make you happy). There are a few ways in which we can ensure that our projects will only fall under this category of usefulness. It all starts with an idea; But not just any idea, the idea we are talking about will act as the catalyst for our success and progress. But how do we know that we have the right project idea? It is really quite simple; ask yourself what you want. It could be anything in the universe, just ask. The next step is deciding how you are going to attain whatever you just thought of. This is the beginning of your big project. It goes without saying that the process of attainment varies quite widely from idea to idea but the premise is often the same. The idea you think of should be one that builds enthusiasm and excitement. Do not worry about the details until a bit later on, for now just imagine how great you are going to feel once you complete your project; Hold onto that feeling.
Now it is time to step in the direction of your project. The sooner you take this step, the better. The journey of one thousand miles begins with a single step; I have found that the most efficient way to take this first step is to write out something I like to call a mission statement. Not the type that businesses have, what I am talking about is a pen and paper document which states exactly why you are undertaking the project you have selected and vividly describes how you are going to feel upon completion of this project.
If you even remotely keep up with my blog you know that I write about this type of thing all the time (success, progress, efficiency, etc.) I do this very intentionally due to the fact that I enjoy writing about things which I hold close to my heart or in this case, things which I enjoy applying in my own life. Be sure to check out some of my other articles for more info on getting things done or simply being happy. There is one last point I would like to make: When working on a big project things can often get overwhelming and stressful; Fear not this is a normal part of the process. Just remember to stop and take a deep breath every once in a while, sometimes taking time to relax and reflect on your project will actually aid in it’s development. That’s all for now folks, soon enough I’ll be posting a radically updated version of the team website which I think you will all enjoy. Au revoir for now!
