Before the Beginning…
We have to take in to account our past yak shaving parties. Our plans should already be cleanly shaved in detail, and more important than inclusion may be (definitely is) exclusion. Hopefully everything we want is easy to imagine. More challenging is to determine everything to be left out. After finishing something, everyone knows nobody sees everything they didn’t want in the process before they began. Ask a writer how much more difficult it is to say more saying less.
“Don’t go to Home Depot for the hose,” Seth Godin.
But what to leave out? What if we need a hose? Leave out things based on experience. No, not everything we’ve learned, but anything we’ve taken personal account of that is beyond a healthy, sustainable goal. We can’t give and expect more in glory unless, before beginning, the goal is sustainable by ourselves. We are the determining factor and foundation of everything we do from the start of a venture. We must continually hone our eyes on finding weaknesses before we take action and take them out.
Progressing a project successfully begins before we begin. The quality of the original thought must remain connected to the ultimate goal of a project throughout the process. After the initial, inspiring flash of an idea, we need to ask, “what do I need less of for this to come to fruition?” “Don’t go to Home Depot for the hose” means that, when we are planning, we should try to leave out everything that doesn’t belong to our goal, anything divisive in destination.
