Projects

Projects generally have more moving parts than tasks. Projects require a series of tasks and may have the complexity to justify project management techniques.

Generally, the first two questions to ask with a project is, “What is the next action required?” and “What resources will I need to do that action?” These questions ferret out the first task in the project and what you will need to do that task.

For example, the first task in the project of installing sprinklers is getting referrals for landscape designers from your friends, and the resource needed will be your Facebook account or your phone. Organize your tasks by the resources needed, so that if you have a spare moment with a smart phone, you can fill that time by calling your friends.
