A trick I use is time or quantity. For example, "Brainstorm at least 7 story-board sections for next article"Originally Posted by glued_to_chair
Sounds to me that "Write Script" is the project. (Identify-able, successful outcome. Then, the next actions simply line up to make that happen. An author-friend of mine takes large sheets of butcher paper and storyboards the entire book he's currently working on. (He's done this for over thirty books on financial management!) At the far right side of the large sheet of paper is an icon representing the BOOK. Then, throughout the middle are the steps, components and/or sections to get there. THEN, he takes pieces of those parts and works through next actions. Sometimes, an hour at a time, sometimes a day at a time, sometimes he takes the whole day off!Originally Posted by glued_to_chair
