Project Too Big For A Calendar? - David Neagle

Project Too Big For A Calendar?

This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from someone who wishes to remain anonymous. 

Neagle Code Question

I’m getting ready to do a big project —It’s going to be really intense.

I’ve heard you say, “Put everything you need to do on the calendar.” And my brain is partially rejecting that idea.

My brain is saying, “That’s great for regular stuff…but it’s not going to work for THIS project, because this is a big project.” Is that a lie?

Neagle Code Answer

Yes, it’s a lie. It’s a total lie.

Putting things on the calendar will work for every project, no matter how big or small it is.

Everyone gets the same 24 hours to work with. No matter how complex a project is, it can still be broken down into small pieces. The small pieces are no different than anything else you’ve been doing your entire life. It’s just that there are more pieces.

That’s how you eat an elephant.

You tell yourself, “I will endeavor to persevere. I will not expect it to happen overnight. It’s a big project, and I know how long it’s going to take — it’s a number, a specific timeframe.”

Even though it’s a huge project, calendaring is a process you can use no matter what you’re doing. Even if you’re on vacation, doing nothing, it could still be the process you use.

If a project is really big, ask yourself: what kind of support do you need in doing it?

And then give yourself that support.

Whether it’s reaching out to someone and saying, “Hey, I’m working on something really big and I may need somebody to talk to. It’s kind of stressful. Would you be willing to be a sounding board for me?” Or whatever you need. Do it.

If you need to give yourself a little extra time off around that project, do it. Give yourself the support you need to work through whatever you need to work through.

When you do that, you’re solving the problem consciously.

You know in advance things might get difficult. But you’re also acknowledging that, while giving yourself whatever support you need to move through it.

That’s where you grow, because you’re staying conscious throughout the whole process.
