Have you ever set out to complete a “quick” project, only to have it grow well beyond your initial estimate? You learned that it contained more complexity than you expected, and took more time than you anticipated.
Well, take heart. It’s not just you! This happens to me all the time as well.
I found a fun way to show you a recent example of this.
When I went to add some Google Calendar integration to the Fractal Planner, my initial plan had only 3 tasks that I had to do.
Watch how the plan grows from there as I discover how much structure the project *ACTUALLY* had.
[NOTE: there is NO SOUND on this video, so no need to check your speakers]
Can you relate to this, or what?
In a couple days I’ll post another video where I remove finished items from the list, so you can see the “natural rhythm” of a project.
