3 Tips For Project Management

By: Robison L.

Introduction

Being “The Boss” can be intimidating, but does it need to be? To-do lists pile up, tasks get mixed up and forgotten, strengths and weaknesses conflict, and you miss your mark for excellent work, piece by piece.

These challenges may seem like they’re too complicated to be resolved by a single person, but luckily for you, we have compiled a list of three things that can help you manage your projects like a pro.

Software

 No matter how well you can perform your work, it is wise to use all of the resources available to you. Gone are the days of keeping notes and references on paper. Lets’s take a look at some programs that can boost your effectiveness!  Some popular programs are:

  • Keap (our favorite at Success Engine!)
  • Notion
  • Trello
  • Adobe Workfront

Each has its learning curve and provides specialized functionality, which is common with any new software or program. You get out of it what you put into it, so try your hand at a few tools and see which fits you best. You may find that one tool pairs well with another to make up for what one or the other lack. It’s wise to not toss out one program too quickly before seeing how it may pair with another.

Virtual Assistants

    Now, I’m not talking about a paid VA; I’m talking about the built-in helper in every smartphone. There are several of them across the different phone platforms. iPhones have Siri, Androids have Bixby, and Google phones use a Google engine assistant. It’s almost likely you have an “assistant” sitting in your pocket! Plus their memory is perfect, and they’ll never fail a task that they are programmed to accomplish. You may be neglecting a powerful tool that you’ve carried with you for many years!

    These assistants are ready at a moment’s notice to take note of tasks, schedule appointments and events in your calendar, set reminders, send a quick hands-free text, and many other managerial procedures. You may not always have access to a computer, but you will likely have your phone in a pinch.

    Playbooks

    Pardon the sports reference, but your “Playbook” needs to be packed and ready to run plays for any situation you come across at any given time. Taking the time to plan out what you’ll do before you’re in a situation where you have to make quick decisions will limit your margin for error and make your life much easier. Problems come in many shapes and sizes, and you may not know what to prepare for when you’re first starting your business. Still, eventually, you’ll recognize patterns that you can prepare for to level up your decision-making abilities. The “Fly by the seat of your pants” method can only last so long, so take time to evaluate and adjust your strategies often to avoid past mistakes.

    These few examples just a drop in the Project Management bucket, however, they can make productive waves in your business! You’re not alone if you’ve ever felt like you’ve reached the end of your rope! Don’t give up! Keep searching for new tools that others have used to take back their time and reorganize their process.
