What kills most projects? Easy – It’s failure to simply move. People get caught up in the details of planning that they fail to execute- Deer in headlights while a truck of tasks barrels down on them.
We have multiple frameworks, or “triangles” that could alleviate most problems like this. These help us write, plan, and keep project execution from stalling.
Here’s a look at 4 of the 9 triangles, and how they help keep us on track.
You can grab numbers and say “You have this many fans!”, but the value comes in measuring changes- which requires iteration, since you can’t measure from a single point. Plan your method of attack from there.
When writing and promoting, we keep Goals, Content, and Targeting (GCT) – What is your intended outcome? What supports the goal, content-wise, and who benefits from the message? You can place this under “Audience Planning”.
Do, Delegate, Delete (DDD) – This helps you be efficient yourself. When assigned a task, either do it yourself or pass it off to someone else, and then delete the task from your to-dos. Don’t save it for later when you see it by clicking “Mark as Unread” on an email- this breeds procrastination, and as more things shovel in on you, it will slide further back and languish.
