Everybody works differently. For me, I find I am more productive when I have a well thought out and structured approach to my work.
Some people like to jump right in and start tackling things right off the bat. Others, like me work best when we have taken the time to build parameters, systems and process around what we have to do before we begin.
This approach is obviously time consuming but I find it is time well spent as it allows me to draw up some boundaries and develop a structured approach to execution which as a result gives me some clarity on what I need to do, how I need to go about it and makes my execution a matter of following the plan and process that I’ve spent so long formulating.
When I face resistance to a particular project, sometimes it’s because I have not spent adequate time building out the structure and process that will enable me to tackle the chaos with clarity.
