Planning Is Extremely Valuable

Planning Is Extremely Valuable

Most people tend to be overly optimistic planners, but then the projects take much longer and more effort than initially thought.

Our inability at planning shows in how we tend to choose immediate over long-term rewards. Life is also complicated and what we need to do to have a better future is more complex. For example, to advance a career, you may need to acquire skills, apply for new jobs, or complete key projects. Each one requires considerable planning.

With a map drawn, the next step is your itinerary. When you will start, how many days a week you will work and when you expect to reach key milestones.

Break down everything you need to do to enable you to move forward on a project. Success requires a plan way more granular than most people make it.

The 10% rule states that you should spend roughly 10% of the total time you anticipate for a project on planning the project. The time spent planning is often the most valuable.

Planning should tell you what you need to do for today. Not next week. Not tomorrow. Today.
