Conquer a Daunting Project In 30 Minutes Or Less

Do you have a project or task in front of you that seems daunting,- and it makes you feel overwhelmed just thinking about it?
(Such as creating a new website, starting a newsletter, writing your first ebook, planning a speaking engagement, etc.)

Here’s my favorite method for turning a “scary project” into a manageable project.

Its very simple: take out a blank piece of paper, and take 20-30 minutes to break the project down into manageable steps.
You can either do this as a list of steps or as a mindmap.

After you do this, your project transforms from being murky and intimidating to doable and just a list of clear steps.
(By the way, this is an extremely effective method, so don’t be deceived by the simplicity of it.)

Ill give you an example.

Lets say you want to start an email newsletter.
I just did 20 minutes of brainstorming, and here are some of the basic steps that would be needed.

– Sign up for an email list management software, such as Aweber or Constant Contact.
– Determine the focus of your newsletter
– Decide on your target audience (the tribe you want to communicate to)
– Develop a schedule for how often you want to send it out
– Choose a name for your newsletter (optional)
– Decide on HTML or text
– Create your first 3 newsletter topics

Now when you review this list, doesn’t it seem like each one of these tasks is really doable?
And each task could be done in an hour or less, don’t you think?
Which means that you could get the whole project of creating an email newsletter done in one day, or definitely in one week.

So what daunting projects have you been putting off lately?
(specifically ones that could help you grow your business and attract clients)

Pick a high priority project, and give my process a try!

Which project are you “breaking down”? Does your project suddenly seem a lot more manageable?
Please leave me a note below, I’d love to hear from you.
