Increased Effectiveness on Projects
1. Focus Only on Three Major Projects
Most people limit their success by juggling too many projects. Make a list of all the things you have going on and get rid of everything except the three most important. Give yourself the opportunity to do great work on the three that mean the most.
2. Define It
What is the end result you want to achieve?
3. Create Smaller Tasks Within Each Project
Break the project into manageable pieces. Identify all the specific parts of the project.
4. Establish Deadlines For Your Projects
Coordinate the project workload back into your weekly and daily schedules. With a deadline, you will be more focused and concentrated at the task at hand so you can accomplish it on time.
5. Ask Yourself The Right Questions
Am I accomplishing the most important tasks today? Will it matter if the tasks assigned or the entire project doesn't get done today? This week?
6. Delegate tasks and projects.
Majority of your projects are taking too much of your time and energy and could be delegated so you can work on the most important. Determine what resources are needed (people, equipment, materials) how much do you need and when do you need them. Then research what resources are available and start delegating.
7. Communication Is Key
Interview all the major stakeholders to learn what their expectations are and what is important to them. Then design and implement a communication system that will keep everyone informed.
8. Create During High-Energy Times
Plan to create, write and work on projects during peak energy times. Our peak times occur between 11am-1pm and 4-6pm.
Review your progress periodically. This will help you stay on track. After the project is complete take a few minutes to evaluate your success and identify areas for future improvements.
10. Reward Yourself
Take some time to enjoy and appreciate your accomplishments. You deserve it you did a great job!
