The Voluntary Life: 186 Natural Project Planning

186 Natural Project Planning

As an entrepreneur, I wanted to learn more about the project planning because I needed to delegate and collaborate with others. I now see project planning as integral to getting things done in all areas of life. This episode is my own take on an approach called the natural planning model. These are the three minimal steps I use in planning every project:
  • Naming the outcome
  • Identifying the next action
  • Reviewing each project regularly
If I am stuck on a project, the more detailed planning I do includes:
  • Mindmaps
  • Creating a project documentation template in Evernote
  • Writing down more details about the purpose and mission to clarify this for myself
  • Journaling and brainstorming
  • Identifying project components and milestones
  • Scheduling and programming tasks in a task management app (I use Omnifocus)
