A doable plan


Starting with a blank sheet of paper or your entire and detailed to-do list, with an infinite amount of time and whatever other resources are necessary, it’s likely you can pull off whatever you can think of, whatever you put on your plate. Back here with the humans, time and resources aren’t infinite but we still seem to imagine is possible to do everything we can think of, regardless of constraints. Invent, produce and market the product, read the entire works of Shakespeare, train for and climb Everest, and all before the year is out.

The game is to work out not only what you want to do, but what you can get the resources to do – factoring in your personal commitment and prioritisation quotient.

In other words, enough to challenge, not so much it’s a wash from the start.

Skippy strategy: Make it a doable plan, then do it.
