The great American writer Mark Twain once said:
“Never wait until tomorrow, which can be done the day after tomorrow.”
When we live with this advice, we sometimes find that at 2:00 in the morning, we light up a concentrated coffee to not wake up and finish a huge project, which should be at 6 o’clock …
As productive as I’d like to think that I. .. I was there …
If you were there, or maybe if you’re there now, that video is for you this week. I’m not going to spend time giving lectures about the importance of planning.Now we’ll look at some specific concepts related to planning and willpower per minute-the Impact Matrix, Ego-but let’ s start with the foundation:
I think your location is vital when you work under pressure, and I personally like to choose places to study, based on their “vibe”-that is, what is happening around me. I usually go to the coffee shop and the library-I still go to my university library sometimes, despite the fact that I have finished-because I work well when I am surrounded by other people who work too. Besides, the proximity to caffeine is helpful …
However, the most important part of the location selection avoids the “pillow calling”. When you study time, you’ll probably be doing it late at night. That’s why you want to stay away from your bed.
The later he gets, the more you start to rationalize how well the nap can be, and the more you decide that some parts of your project don’t matter. So choosing a place to sleep would be more effort than completing the next part of your project ..
It’s the business that took care of, now it’s time.
Dwight Eisenhower noticed this a lot.“What is important, important, and what is urgent is rarely important.”
However, when you are in some time, it may seem urgent-so it is important that you focus on this factor. To do this, let’ s use a similar but more appropriate tool
Here, the objectives of the project are assessed based on their impact on the overall success of the project and on the efforts it will make to implement them. To illustrate how this works, here is an example of my life …
When I was in college, one of my last projects built a web app. My idea was called AMPanic, and it was an app that would require you to register and say if you’d be awake until a certain amount of time-otherwise he would send someone in an inconvenient letter. In fact, it was a harbinger of the early awakening system I am using now, which I am.
Despite the fact that this project, I ended up in some time trying to finish it. So I broke my project into different parts, which I would have to use for the code and prioritize them with this Impact/Effort ..
matrix.The main feature code that would allow to install the alarm and e-mail message, the code that will plan and send e-mail on time, and the function to cancel the email if the user checked the time in the first half of the day-they required a lot of effort to build, but they also had the greatest impact on the project ..
On the other hand, some parts of the site-for example, FAQ and Contact-did not have such high impact, but were low-cost tasks. Since they didn’ t have much time to create, I made sure they had to make the site more complete …
The main element of the site where I chose NOT to focus was the system of user registration and login. The correct functions are needed to reset the passwords, but I have decided that the basic features of setting the alarm will be more important to my class, as this is the point of the entire project. I used the login system I wrote for the old project and did not interfere with the creation of a password reset method …
In the end, it was a good solution; the alarm system was more advanced than most other projects in the class, so I finished getting A.
To assign Impact/Effort assessments to each project component-or each assignment, if you juggle several-consider the following:.
The classification criteria for the project, the number of components for most locations.
The percentage of each target for each target.
How much of each component will contribute to the knowledge needed for tests that usually affect your class the most.
As soon as you assign points to each component, I think it’s a good idea to first deal with the highest consequences and maximum effort. It must be
” … the effort of will or self-control is a tedious effect; if you have to do something, you are less prepared or less capable of exercising self-control when the next challenge comes around.Use the main part of the will to perform more difficult tasks first; therefore, you will only have to deal with low-cost, high-impact tasks, when you feel a drained …
That’s where we’re going to close this week. If you have chosen your location correctly, plan on the basis of impact and effort and solve your tasks in such a way as to use your willpower effectively, you will do it if you eat in one piece at your time …
