The 10% Rule: Becoming A Better Planner

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.

At first, set aside more time for planning. Force yourself to map out the path ahead instead of just doing.

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.

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

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.

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