During a one-to-one session with a client to become an elite performer โ€“ he appeared a stressed because of his tendency to overcommit and overpromise. You may have heard of the statement - under commit and overdeliver but letโ€™s take this point a little further to unravel some secrets.

๐Ÿ’  I'd like to share a lesson from my sailing days about time and project management.

What 4 factors to keep in mind before you commit to your boss, your client or customer. This way, you will manage your stress better and execute your projects more successfully. ๐Ÿš€

Hereโ€™s some nuts and boltsโ€ฆ ๐Ÿ”จ

โœ” ๐Ÿญ. ๐—ฃ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฝ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป ๐˜๐—ถ๐—บ๐—ฒ โ€“ This one is obvious, but forgotten element. Before any work, you will need time to prepare โ€“ if you want to send an email write a presentation โ€“ you will have to start your comp, login and so on.

โœ” ๐Ÿฎ. ๐—ช๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐—ธ ๐˜๐—ถ๐—บ๐—ฒ โ€“ This is the actual time that people talk about and commit to someone without taking into consideration other 3 factors and then end up hurriedly doing it, sometimes mediocrely or end up with delays, angry customer or boss, stress for oneself. All because the other 3-time factors werenโ€™t actually factored in.

โœ” ๐Ÿฏ. ๐—•๐˜‚๐—ณ๐—ณ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ ๐˜๐—ถ๐—บ๐—ฒ (๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐˜€, ๐˜‚๐—ป๐—ธ๐—ป๐—ผ๐˜„๐—ป๐˜€) โ€“ Less know, but very important โ€“ something that usually comes with age, wisdom and experience but you donโ€™t have to wait that long. Simply factor it in. You can โ€“ if you are a human then you probably will make some mistakes โ€“ if not now then later. This buffer time is to absorb the errors and mistakes you or your team may make. The human element + some unknowns and even unknown, unknowns. Well folks, bottom line - keep the buffer time, will you ๐Ÿ˜Š

โœ” ๐Ÿฐ. ๐—ง๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐˜€๐—ถ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป ๐˜๐—ถ๐—บ๐—ฒ โ€“ Again, something many people forget to accommodate in their plans. There is a transition phase between one work and another work. To physically move from one place to another or even to mentally shift gears. To close previous things and open new stuff to work upon or maybe its rest and recreation or even lunch.
