‘If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail!’
– Benjamin Franklin
Here’s a scenario you’re probably familiar with:
You have a good idea and you want to do it, but you couldn’t start, working harder didn’t work, or you got overwhelmed and the project failed. The end.
At multiple points in your life, you probably wanted to do something great, but the idea got stuck somewhere along the way and the project ended in failure. It could be due to any number of reasons, but the main factor that you can directly control is how you plan for it.
Whether it’s for building a business, embarking on a new project for your department, or simply planning your next road trip or vacation, these three simple project planning steps can maximize your chances for success.
