Whatever your big plan is, whether you’re working on a big project, or you’ve had an idea for a while now but haven’t had the guts to implement it, you can make it a reality. To start off you simply have to believe in your idea. It may have been stewing in your head for a while, and therefore much of the finer details might already have been ironed out by now.
Believe it can be done – Generally the biggest hurdle we have is our own mindset. We believe that something cannot be achieved, and therefore we don’t bother giving it a try, and instead run off to play Angry Birds or PartyPoker. Believe in your ability to get something done, and it will happen.
Don’t be intimidated by it – We are all victims of doubts and fears. And sometimes the sheer scale of a project can be enough to put you off entirely. Don’t let it. Get more people involved to help out, and make sure you know every detail before you begin implementing it.
Plan out every aspect – Planning is the most important aspect. When something isn’t properly organized, your idea can become a shambles. Write out contingency plans for every eventuality, brain storm every small thing that can go wrong, and plan each and every stage of implementation from beginning to end. That way if you go off schedule or have a problem, you at least know where you’re going with it.
Have a back-up plan – Things are going to go wrong. Have a back-up plan just in case your initial plans are completely infeasible. Having a non negotiable plan causes nothing but trouble, if you’re for example, designing.
