Scott Belsky’s new book, “Making Ideas Happen” (amazon affiliate link) provides a blueprint for how to take your ideas and actually make them a reality. He spends about a third of the book talking about project management and his “action method.” Simply put, Scott’s method looks like this:
- Turn everything into a project.
- Set up a “folder” for every project you have (use what methods work best for you – high or low-tech options work)
- Break every project into three areas (1. action items, references, back burner items)
- Act on the action steps
This method is simple (and there is a bit more to it than just these four steps); however, that is what makes it so beautiful and useful. Grab the book, learn more about Scott’s method and do something great!
