Planning


We all have our own unique approaches to planning.

It's important to have a plan or at least some pathway that you have thought through with milestones identified along the way.

In addition to this, it's also important to plan for the unexpected and to be able to adapt where needed when things change.

There will always be circumstances that may set-back your project. In those moments, we really encourage you take a deep breath, and look at options available.

Some of the best plans are scribbles on the back of a napkin, though large sheets of white paper and coloured markers can be helpful to think big and map out timelines, scenarios and work flows. From there, you can create digital documents and make charts, diagrams and written descriptions of the plan.
