The advantage of finite terms for projects
Give your projects finite terms. Give them a deadline to have reached a certain milestone by. Having a finite term in which to do so means there is less chance of the project dragging on, and it helps you for future projects as well.
This helps you in setting goals, and it also gives you the chance to refresh, to rethink things through a different lens when it comes time to start something new. Not only will you have learned skills from the previous project, you would have learned what sort of approach to take to new projects as well.
Generally speaking, you want to go in head first. You want to be able to give the project your all so that you have the best chance of achieving your goals within the determined time frame. Depending on how well that goes you can adjust your goals for future projects as well.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.
I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.
On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.
