Plan the work

A reminder from Adam Keys that planning is a key step of the work.
Planning the work is an essential part of doing the work. An ambitious but uncertain 6-month idea becomes an ambitious but plausible plan in steps. Make a 90-day plan by breaking it into chunks. Organize them into a coherent fraction of the 6-month idea. Make trade-offs to decide what’s most important or risky. Start on the first thing. Rinse and repeat.

Planning focuses our ideas
It's amazing how many things end up slipping through the cracks when you don't plan.
