Avoid Over Planning With Teams

When you are exploring new territory for a project, it’s best to not over plan. You’ve never been where you are going, so how can you *really* plan ahead?

Instead try this:

  • Decide what success looks like. Start working backwards.
  • Come up with the next 3 steps you need to take. If your team thinks the steps sound good, get started quickly.
  • Keep moving forward with small steps / chunks. Don’t make huge milestones. They will slow you down and you’ll lose momentum.
