Once you have got your mind around where to start, this does not entirely solve the problem of how. To actually get some traction and make things happen, is still something that can be amazingly difficult when looking at a large project. So taking some ideas and working these in together with your preparation to get started can help you get moving a lot quicker. I just have four steps you can try today, but you can easily modify some or extend on them as required.
- Start Small – While big projects seem good, and like they will achieve a lot, this is not always that case. Sometimes taking on a small project to warm up to a larger project will be more rewarding, and give you a little more motivation to get started.
- Know what the target is – If you are creating a project that you want to work on and do not really know what the specific outcome is that you are aiming for, then it makes the project seem like it does not actually have a target. Knowing what you are working on and what the actual outcome you are looking for is, gives you a much more powerful position to start with.
- Break it down – If the project seems much bigger then you can think of actually completing then, maybe you are right. It may be worth your time taking a look at the project and what makes up the project and see if you cannot break it down a little and make it into a series of more manageable projects.
- Create Milestones – If there really is no way to actually break down the goal then you need to have milestones along the way. Achieving a series of milestones makes the final goal not seem so unachievable, when it seems like you have to do it all at once. So even if it just a series of percentage milestones, it makes it seem like you are working towards a little bit closer point and makes it seem easier to achieve.
Take a look at your goal break it down, set milestones, or set a clear objective, whatever it is you are making it seem easier to achieve.
