Within the exercise of setting goal in various connective sections there is also a need to address the timeline issue and provide for a suitable one.
This will help to ensure all participants become aware of the time constraints and the requirements for each section allowed.
Letting a project run without any specific timeline firmly in place is very unwise and some would even say detrimental to the success of any project, therefore the following points are listed to help overcome this negative possibility:
Identifying one’s own most productive period cycles within a working day will help to optimize the amount of productive effort put into the endeavor.
This can then be coordinated with the others involved in the project, if any, as not everyone will have the same levels of productivity at the same times. The advantage of this will give those involved a chance to identify higher priority tasks to be done during these peak cycles and leaving the lesser demanding tasks to be done during the off-peak cycles. Thus, optimizing the timeline always.
Allotting time within the timeline to concentrate on the project without any outside communication or distractions will also contribute to the eventual completion of the project within the timeline frame.
As distractions can cause a person to lose temporary focus, this consideration is important if not vital to the overall timeline being kept.
Within each task there should be a specific time frame allotted and adhered to without exceptions. Ensuring all efforts are focused on getting the task completed before work is stopped, will help to keep the designed target in place.
These mini milestones will also act as a good motivating factor because the accomplishments become visible every step of the exercise.
