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.
