    "Only do projects that matter: Life is too short to be doing a lot of busy work that is not your life’s work." Leading motivational expert, marketing trainer and #1 New York Times bestselling author, Brendon Burchard released a video recently talking about: How To Manage Projects With Excellence

    In the video below, Burchard talks about: How To Manage Projects With Excellence



    1. Only do projects that matter: Life is too short to be doing a lot of busy work that is not your life’s work. When you start to say no more often and only take on real projects that you’re truly passionate about, it’s much easier to be effective, enthusiastic and excellent.

    2. Know your best role: There’s a big difference between being an individual contributor to a project and being the person responsible for the project. Be honest with yourself: Are you good at managing projects? Is it your natural ability? If not, be a contributor, not a manager.
    3. Have a clear outcome: Be absolutely clear about what the completed project looks like. What’s the end game? What metrics measure success? What does the impact of the completed project look like? Having clarity about the vision you’re after will ensure you avoid getting distracted or derailed.

    4. Put a calendar in place: A schedule isn’t enough. To be effective you have to plan the deadlines, steps, completion dates, and people managing the project in detail. It’s easy to get distracted without a clear purpose and deadlines, so put milestones in place and keep moving towards them.

    5. Focus on distinction, excellence, and service:

    To do a project well, ask yourself: “How can I do this project uniquely and differently? How do we wow people with excellence? How do we serve at the highest level?” When you refuse to be a cog, and instead resolve to be a standout creator, a quality contributor, and someone who leaves people feeling deeply served by every interaction, you will bring a new level of excellence to every project.
