Getting challenging projects done

All of us have been in these situations, where we have fought for a challenging project to be assigned to us. Now, we have it for ourselves. Hmm. Now what? How do we start? It slowly sinks into you that it is indeed a very challenging project, for a short time line. Some of us start feeling jittery even.
Lifedev.net has a great writeup, for just this sort of situation. Read on here.

The essence of the article is:

  1. Start small
  2. Make small timelines
  3. Frequently review the details
  4. Don’t sweat the details… yet.
  5. Think outside the box
  6. Think INSIDE the box
  7. Ask advice

Each one of these bullets is important – ones that we often tend to ignore in high-pressure situations.
